.rem means that Content Protection was enabled on your BlackBerry device and those files can only be viewed by your BlackBerry. You will not be able to view them otherwise. You will need to disable Content Protection from within the Security Options, General Settings before in order to view your photos on your computer.

I do not know of anyway to remove the protection from the files already created with Content Protection enabled (.rem). Disabling Content Protection will not remove it from those files already created, only going forward.
