Angry Please help with 3GP.rem files!!!!!!!!!

Please Login to Remove!

ive got a blackberry storm, the 1st model, with the most recent OS update. ive been taking alot of videos with it. just some 1 to 5 minute videos or so. and everytime i wanna try and upload them to my computer from my blackberry using Blackberry desktop manager, i cannot find the files to do upload them. its like roxio or w/e cannot detect the video files. ive been reading up on whats going on and its something to do with the .rem encryption in the files. i went to options and turned off encryption. but how can i get my videos onto my computer for me to view? ive tried using a SanDisk Micro SD to SD adapter and i can find the files, but it wont play them, ive also used the usb port for my blackberry directly. but nothing works.

can i fix this or are the videos hopeless?

Depends, are you using a Mac or Windows? With a Mac you can use VisualHub (free) to convert them to mp4 files. If you can find the videos on your memory card,Copy / Paste them on the Mac Drive & convert with the free program.
If on a Windows system, I'm sorry I don't play enough on Vista to recommend anything. Hopefully someone here can help. Good luck.

I dunno if this helps you or not. My 8310/9700 produces .3GP (3GPP) files. Not familiar with the .rem extension. I use Apple Quicktime for WINDOWS, and they fire right up. Will also convert them to any flavor you wish. CG

.rem is blackberry's encryption.
If the files were recorded, when encryption was enabled; disabling encryption, (as far as i know) won't remove the encryption.
They are useless cept to play on the blackberry.
