3 days ago my card just prompted me for a mmc (SanDisk card) password--which I'd never set!
I did an online search & found that many people, particularly nokia symbian users are experiencing this problem.
Most people online advise that you download some program; set the remote lock;or format your mmc (yikes!!)
I tried the 1st 2 suggestions, without success. Formatting the mmc is a big no! no! for most of us!
So what did I do now?
On my Nokia E50:
1)Go to MENU-->then SETTINGS.
2)go to SECURITY---> then PHONE & SIM.
This is the key to it guys (at least it worked for me!):
3)on "Pin code request", mark the option as "OFF"
--in other words, no matter what phone you are using, you should note have a pin code for starting the phone ;-)
[But then because I was not sure what I was doing, I just turned off all the codes & marked the "Lock if SIM changed" & "Allow Remote Lock" as "NO". - But I don't think that's necessary..but I did it anyway.]
4) Final step is to SWITCH OFF your phone.
5) Now switch it on again.
--The phone will no longer request a pin code.
But if you have set a lock code, it will request that--which you know
BINGO!! All the stuff you stored in your mmc is there now
SO please, don't format your cards people!
Thanks for reading this essay.

Ok. As long as you understand this is a Nokia issue and has nothing to do with the card. It is the phone that put the password on there in the first place.
