Menc file extension of picture file-cannot download,what software is used to download..unit is ASPEN..thanks


MENC finle stands for Microsoft Windows Mobile encrypted file. This means that the encryption is turned on in your Windows mobile phone all your pics become .menc files when the encryption is on. Turn off he encryption.
To disable encryption
go to Settings ? System or Settings ? Security on the Windows Mobile device and remove check the box that says "Encrypt files placed on storage cards."

Picture file MENC can't open in my PC


.MENC file extension is a Windows Mobile Encrypted File.

Open this link to read more about .MENC file. It say's there,

"MENC files are designed to be decrypted by the device that created the file. Therefore, MENC files can be transferred to a PC using Windows ActiveSync or Windows Mobile Device Center, but it may not be possible to decrypt the file on the computer. Also, changing the GUID on a MENC file will disable the ability of the decryption program to properly decrypt the file.

To avoid encrypting files, go to Settings ? System or Settings ? Security on the Windows Mobile device and uncheck the box that says "Encrypt files placed on storage cards.""

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

I wanna convert my photo menc format to jpeg format what should i do?


Actually, .menc file (Microsoft windows mobile encrypted file) isn't a real file type extension, it only indicates that the file is encrypted on a Storage Device (windows mobile) where Storage Card Encryption feature is installed.... They can't be directly converted to Jpeg. You have to remove the encryption and then restore them to normal jpeg file. First transfer the files to the computer, and then disable the Storage Card Encryption from the Mobile/Device and again transfer back to the device.
More details with illustrations here (click here).

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Contacts locked with menc file extension


You will be able to tell the difference when you can remove the storage card and insert it in another device or card reader. Encrypted files will be displayed as .MENC files, with the following filename convention:
[filename].[extension].[GUID].menc
The [GUID] is the encryption key that determines whether the file can be decrypted on the device where the storage card is inserted. The .menc extension is the indicator that tells whether a file is encrypted. The purpose of the extension is to indicate that you can't open those files. A Lock icon is also associated with the encrypted files.
When you insert the storage card back to your device where the files were encrypted, the [GUID] will match with the decryption key on your device and the [GUID].menc extension will not be displayed. Encrypted files will appear just like normal files and they can be opened.

The first photo's I took are normal jpog files, the latest photos are in a *.menc type. photo's do show on my mtc, but i cannot open these on my pc


The.menc file extension means that the memory card on your phone is encrypted. You need to decrypt it on your phone. Go to Settings and search for the option to encrypt/decrypt the card from there. After this you can see your pics on the PC as well.

I CANNOT VIEW MENC FORMAT


The .menc extension is the indicator that tells whether a file is encrypted. The purpose of the extension is to indicate that you can't open those files. A Lock icon is also associated with the encrypted files.
When you insert the storage card back to your device where the files were encrypted, the [GUID] will match with the decryption key on your device and the [GUID].menc extension will not be displayed. Encrypted files will appear just like normal files and they can be opened.

Decrypting files:
To decrypt files that are encrypted, the current solution is to transfer them from the storage card to a computer via ActiveSync or Windows Mobile Device Center, and then copy them back to the storage card after the Storage Card Encryption has been disabled on the device.
  1. To disable Storage Card Encryption:
  2. Go to Start>Settings>System Tab>Encryption.
  3. Uncheck the box that says “Encrypt files placed on the storage card.”
  4. Tap OK.
