    Default IT WORKED! encrypted jpg.rem is now back to .jpg

    Finally GOT it working!

    For some reason, all my pictures taken had been saved with .rem extension at the end meaning encrypted, I've had trouble trying to find a way to open up those pictures on my computer/laptop other than e-mailing them back to myself.

    So after some reading, I managed to turn off all encryption and did a software update on my BB 9000 Bold.

    The pictures taken are now saved with just .jpg, which is great! But what about the old pictures?

    a method i saw is, first make sure encryption is off! (test by taking new picture), then going go MEDIA -> EXPLORE, create a new folder and MOVE the encrypted picture ONE by ONE which would decrypt it, turning it back to .jpg. It does work... but it will take you A MILLION YEARS to do one by one. In my case.. i had a 1000+ pictures.

    Since Media Explorer doesn't support multiple select, i started looking for options... I first used a freeware/donateware BBFileScout... which chickened out on my when I was trying to move encrypted file saying that it might not open..

    So i downloaded a trial version of File Manager Pro. I selected multiple files and moved it... and guess what...... IT WORKED!!!! =)

    my life is now free again!


    hope this would help other forum members!!!!

    encrypted images are never really encrypted. rename the file and it still opens as normal. some of BB/RIMs security are just as weak as a windows password. always an easy work around

    Sorry to bump this old thread, but I had a similar question, but related to video files that are encrypted with .REM extensions.

    I tried the trick above of creating a new folder and moving the files there, but that didn't work. The files are still encrypted and cannot be played on my PC. One thing that did work is when I emailed a video file to myself it arrived unencrypted (dropped the .REM and just became .3GP). But this method is useless for all but the smallest video files because of the attachment size limit.

    Any ideas from folks on what else I can try? BTW I am using a Bold 9650 on VZW. Thanks in advance.

    I'm having the same problem. I removed the .rem suffix on a few files using my PC but it did not help.

    I have moved my .rem to another folder, but its still saying .rem and doesn't give me the option to email =/ Ive tried using Roxio and the file is just greyed out and not viewable. In the file info, it does not allow me to unlock >.<

    Default The reason this worked for him but not for you.

    This only worked because the photos were encrypted and decoded all on the same device. The encryption is device specific. I made a similar mistake when I did a warranty swap. My photos were encrypted and the new device wouldn't read them. I had to use the original device to decode them before I could read them on any other device.

    Angry Picture Problem

    I am not sure if my issue is related to encryption but a month or two back, my BB stopped registering to the BB server as an ATT customer. After some lengthy tech support with RIM, they guided me to updated my OS 6 on the ATT website. Did the update and all systems go, great. Now the only problem I have left is that I cannot email, send, text or anything my pictures or videos. I can only move media with something called whatsapp. I tried to uninstall that to see if my BB would be restored and no luck. So I reinstalled my whatsapp. Does anyone know what I can do to get my option to send media via email, text, BBM back???

    Default Be Sure to RENAME FILES IN UNENCRYPTED MODE

    Hi Guys & Gals,

    Basically, I found that I had to make sure files are renamed after encryptions are switched off in options -> security

    Once these files are renamed and keeping encryption off, I was able to synch up with the desktop manager and import the media files.

    Best of luck ( it took my 3 hrs to figure this out today!)

    Not true. Renaming doesn't unencrypt an image file unless you first change Options>Media Card>Encrypt Media Files to "No!"

    Thank you for this tip. I'll see if this program is still available and look into using it for this purpose. Currently I transfer encrypted files back and forth between pc and device using the Roxio Media Manager that comes with an old version of DM, and it's ridiculously slow.
