It prevents the card files from being viewed via mass storage. Great if you work for DoD and have sensitive information on there, bad if you don't need it protected that severely, and your phone ever takes a crap.

Media card encryption is designed to protect the data that you store on the media card that is inserted in your BlackBerry® device. You can encrypt the files on your media card using an encryption key that your device generates for your media card, the device password, or both.
If you encrypt the files using an encryption key that your device generates for your media card, you can only access the files on your media card when the media card is inserted in your device. If you encrypt the files using the device password option, you can access the files on your media card in any device that you insert your media card into, as long as you know the password for the device.
