    You can't decrypt it except with the same device it was encrypted with. Even the same device won't be able to do it after a security wipe.

    Consider your data gone.

    Hi Blarney82,

    First I think it was not a stupid thing to encrypt your SD Card. You would not want for someone else to hhave your pictures and videos in case your SD was lost/stolen.

    Second, I don't think there is a way to decrypt it. This was possible on BBOS if you would have the media card encrypted ONLY with password. But on BB10 I have not found a way to decrypt it. If I am not mistaken the encryption is tied with the device.

    I once read on BlackBerry site (I think) that you should always keep a backup of your files, because you will not be able to decrypt. Actually you will not be able to decrypt even if you just wipe your device.

    You wouldn't happen to have Link Backup of your old Q10? I wonder if loading it to your new Q10 would include the encryption key, and allow you to decrypt the SD card.
