    JPG.REM? What happend to JPG?

    Advertisement



    Ok when I first got my BB it was taking pics and saving them as JPG. About 1 month ago I got a new one because my old BB was acting up.
    Since I got the new BB it has been saving everything as JPG.REM. and now I cant see them from my pc only from my bb.

    Question is: how can I change the formatting back to only .JPG??

    The way I figure is if anyone can help its the Pinstack folks.

    Any help is greatly appriciated.

    the .rem means that you have the microSD card encrypted; you can change the settings on your BB to not encrypt the SD card

    cwak, I don't think that will unencrypt the already saved files though.. it didn't for me when I lost my pics, but this was several OS versions back. has it changed?

    The files that where saved like are still like that but the new files that are now saved are working just fine.

    Is there a way to change the formating of the files that already have .REM back to JPG without losing any them?

    Re: JPG.REM? What happend to JPG?

    seriously - i have the exact same problem. i have about 200 encrypted jpgs that i took with my camera phone that i'd like to just transfer to my pc. the pearl manual says it should decrypt them for you if you just turn media encryption off, but it doesn't work. if anyone has any idea about this please help! right now i think i'll have to email them all to myself, one by one. nightmare!

    from the pearl manual:
    If you encrypted the media files on your media card using a media card encryption key and you are trying to open an encrypted media file using your computer or a device other than the BlackBerry device that you used to encrypt the file, insert the media card into the BlackBerry device that you used to encrypt the file. In the media card options, set the Encryption Mode field to None or Security Password.

    Question Re: jpg.rem de-encript on pc aftr deleting on BBRY

    [.jpg.rem] to [.jpg] after dwnld'd to PC & deleted on device

    Searched and didn't find the answer. Encription turned off, new pics fine.

    jpg.rem files on PC deleted from BBPearl

    has anyone succesfully de-encripted the files once on PC?

    I have tried to upload the files back to BB but when files are opened again on BB they show a white screen, no image.

    I just found the way around this now... I'm sending every file via BT to my system. Yes, it's slow, but better that than deleting them.

    I now that you don't need the blue tooth, all you have to do is use desktop manager, and cut and paste the files to you computer, and cut and paste them back onto your BB. I don't know if this helps, or not.

    Hey guys. Great news. I think I've found the most efficient method of decrypting the files.
    1. Turn off future encryptions
      • Go to Options -> Media Card
      • Set Encrypt Media Files to No
      • Note: Despite what people say, you do not have to set Encryption Mode to None - this has nothing to do with your encrypted media files
    2. Move the encrypted files in order to decrypt them
      • Go to Media
      • Press the Menu key
      • Select Explore
      • Navigate to the directory containing your encrypted files
      • Create a temporary folder
      • Move the encrypted files into the temporary folder
      • Note: If you have media files in other directories that need to be decrypted, don't put them in this temporary folder. Instead, create a separate temporary folder in that directory and repeat these steps. This way, you can remember the files' original location
      • For impatient people (like me) or people with way too many encrypted files: To quickly decrypt files:
        • Move one file into the temporary folder using any method (this lets the BB remember the temporary folder as the folder you will be moving future files into)
        • Scroll to the next file
        • Press the Menu key
        • Press the M key (this highlights Move)
        • Click the trackball
        • Press the Menu key
        • Press the M key (this highlights Move here)
        • Click the trackball
        • Rinse & repeat
    3. Clean up
      • Technically, you could use the BB interface to clean up, but if you have way too many files, you'll want to use the Mass Storage Mode - this is more efficient, allows you to navigate the directories quickly, and allows your files to move to their original directories quickly
      • Use the USB cord to connect your BB to a computer and enable Mass Storage Mode
      • Navigate to the temporary folders
      • Move the containing files to their original directories
      • Delete the temporary folders
    I hope this helps you guys. The tips you guys gave me were enough to help me come up with this quick way of decrypting files (IMHO). Enjoy.

    Let me know if something is not clear (probably not), something is way too verbose/detailed/confusing (probably so), or if you have a more efficient way (here's hoping)

    I found your instructions for converting old files but didn't quite understand all of them (due to my inability) Hoping you could help me convert some old photos (20-25 at most).

    Thanks
