I hate to tell you this, but your files are likely gone if you can't mount them in your BB.
The thing about BB's memory card encryption is just that -- it's encryption. If it were easy to just convert the .rem files back to regular files, it'd be a terrible security method. The encryption is tied to the device and device password. If you don't have one of those, you can't decrypt the files.
Unless you work for the NSA, I don't recommend EVER using the Encrypt Memory Card option.
Some people claim to be able to convert -- I've just never seen it done. I learned the hard way, and I think you'll have to, too. Those files you wanted are likely gone forever.
Don't ever use the Media Card Encryption unless you want to risk never getting that information back.::: Device History:::

- no thanks, my clothes aren't falling off.
If u have desktop manager 5 installed, the roxio media center that comes with it is able to decrypt any videos or pics that has the .rem extension. You can try that out and see what happens

This worked for me, but you need your password
Just rename the file (not the extension, the file name).
(For those with the same problem:) If you know your password, disable your memory card encryption &/or device memory media files, depending upon where you saved the file. (Go to "Security Options" in your Setup menu, then select "Encryption" and disable memory card encryption; and just in case, also select "No" under "Include Media Files" of Device Memory.) It will prompt you for your password to change these settings. Once you've changed these settings, go back to the video file in your phone and rename it. When you rename the file, it will also become unencrypted, and the .rem extension will automatically drop off the end.

thanks for what u share helps ..but I figure out a better way, if you don't know your password... just change it to device key then use your device password or if u don't have create a password with your phone then go back to decrypt it.
