    I have encrypted my 32GB media card. But when I connected it to my laptop using card reader, it's working as usual. What's wrong?
    OS 10.3.3.2205

    Double Check that Setting > Security and Privacy > Encryption > Media Card Encryption is toggled on. If it's off, then no the card isn't encrypted. If it's on.... just never heard of that happening.

    I tested my encrypted card and the files can be seen in the file manager, but cannot be open. Encryption works.

    Do you notice any kind of performance degradation when using encryption in the SD card?

    There's a slight delay or lag when accessing encrypted files through phone file manager. It gets noticeable when there's large amounts of data.

    You mean through USB cable? Or card reader?

    I removed the media card from my Passport and I put it in the laptop media card slot.

    Okay...but shouldn't it be like the files doesn't show up in pc or any other phone?

    An encrypted file is not invisible, it's just unreadable.
    I don't have enough informations about how it works, but maybe some developers from this forum could explain better.
    If your files are unreadable I would say they safe.

    Windows won't be able to read the encrypted SD card. A dialogue box will pop up asking if you wish to format the SD card.

    Some people seem to be confused about how sd card encryption works on BlackBerry 10.
    You can see file and folder names. Attempts to open the files will fail.

    You may be right... I think I recall that you can see the files and directory. But that would be a really odd implementation since typically they should do a whole card encryption.

    But that's not any good at all! Like someone stole my phone...now he looks at the files and he knows what I use!
    Like if I have any phone records...he won't be able to listen to them...but he is going to get the phone number!

    From my experience when I insert a BlackBerry 10 encrypted SD card directly to my laptop, windows cannot read the SD card. File explorer does not open. I get a message in windows to the effect that windows cannot read the inserted media card.
    In BlackBerry OS 7 I do recall that viewing folder and file names was possible but not able to open the files of an encrypted media card.
