You probably may need to provide more info on what you want to do, but here is some information...

The .rem extension is indeed owed to the fact that the file is encrypted. The BlackBerry was/is set to encrypt files on the media card AND to include media files.

You cannot remove the encryption by changing the extension, as you have discovered. You can only remove the encryption with the BlackBerry...at least so far as I know, there is no other way.

To obtain a file that is not encrypted, turn off encryption in the device options. Afterward, move the encrypted file to another location. The file should now not be encrypted. Move it back if you want. Repeat for any other files as needed.

If you leave encryption off, any files written will not be encrypted. Any files that were encrypted will remain encrypted unless you removed the encryption as described.

Note: There three ways to set media card encryption. Device key, device password, or device key + device password. If the key was used and the files were written on another device, you will not be able to open the files or remove the encryption using the technique described. If the password was used, you must know the password.
