What is a rem file ?? why does my blackberry create rem files out from my camera instead of a usual jpg ?

my blackberry keeps on turning my photo and video files into rem files instead of jpg or mpeg video files, i cannot change these setting ?

please advise.

 

PS - how do i open the rem files that the blackberry has already created out of my photo files _ i have no software that will lopen any of them ??

 

Please use plain text.

The .rem extension is placed on media files when you have enabled encryption on the media card.
