But How do I decrypte it, it says phone memory and memory card encryption is off. Under memory card I have the following options encrypt without saving key, encrypt and save key, and encrypt with restored key. The pictures and music I have on the 32 gig memory card are the only pictures I have of me and my grandparents before they passed as well as all my music and the first pictures of my grandchild after she was born. PLEASE HELP.

Remove your memory card and insert it again and see. Otherwise insert your memory card in another mobile and check if it works. If nothing works then give your mobile to an expert in a service center.

Here is the link to recover the data from your memory card. You can save the file in another folder and format your memory card and attempt to repeat the steps you had done previously.
It could be due to a corrupted memory card. Hence i would recommend you to get a new one if the above steps does not work

How to convert menc file to jpg

Apparently the files are encrypted and can be decrypted only on the handset/Mobile unit it was encrypted on.

To prevent getting such file type in the future, follow this procedure
Start>Settings>System Tab>Encryption
UnCheck on encryption and after this you will get only normal (Unencrypted file).

Another way is the activesync way. Transfer the file from the handset to pc via ActiveSync, it will automatically decrypt and paste the regular format on to your PC.

Hope it helps
