Default Read .rem file on PC

Please Login to Remove!

I BES IT policy requires encryption of the media card. Roxio Media Manager is crashing on my PC, no matter what I try.

The file on the media card is not tied to the device as I can open them in other device as long as I have the password.

My question is: since I have the password, is there any software that allows me to open these encrypted file on PC?

Thanks!

Or else it wouldn't be worth much as an encryption method

That makes no sense. Encryption is independent of device -- I can put the card into another BB and reads it there. The protection is non-existent if you have the password.

Exactly. The protection is specific to blackberries. Any blackberry.
So you can transfer to a new blackberry if you other one dies, or gets dropped and stops working etc.

Why not just put it in another device and email them to yourself?

Their of 2 methods of encryption, obviously yours was not set to the device or else that would be it. I'd be a bit grateful it was set to password-encryption instead of device.

As Steve086 suggests, email them. I also have a BES lock on media and email things from the card all the time. Works.
