How do you open a file with a .vem extension? I copied some files (.jpeg, word & excel) to a recordable cd and it changed the file extension to .vem. Thanks.

Filenames should not be changed like that. I'd scan this machine with Housecall and Ewido.

Probably you have some compression module installed in your computer. Search for such a program (my pen drive has Virtual Expander, and also generates *.vem files) in your computer.

I have the same issue with files I downloaded to a flash drive from one computer and copied to another. I assume the first computer had an expander. It doesn't appear that the second computer does. Any idea how to access the files now?

I copied files from an old computer to a Flash drive to add to a new computer. All the files have a .vem added to the file name and appear to be corrupt. Anyone have any ideas if these files can be restored?

How to open .vem file

Micro Vault Virtual Expander is pre-installed Sony's unique file compression software. This software will compress your data to virtually store about 3 times*1 as much data!

Without using a Micro Vault drive, you can decompress the files and the folders, compressed by Micro Vault Virtual Expander, by downloading the "Decompression.exe" application.

If it is very importent then send your file to <etech@etechrecovery.com> and they will do a free assesment of your damaged file and let you know by mail whether it is possible and costing.

Visit their website before sending the file.

To view the video emails the recipients must first run mmvem.exe, once the program executes they should be able to view the email you sent them.

If
they still cannot view them, try composing your video in WMA or AVI format using the included program "AMCAP". Once the video has been composed, attach it to a regular email to your recipient. To do this start the AMCAP program click on "Capture" and than on "Start Capture".

opening a .VEM file - finally did it!

Five years ago, I copied a bunch of files onto a Sony thumb drive. About a year later, for some reason, 75% of them converted to a .VEM file extension. I was never able to open them even though the thumb drive had an "expander" file. I have talked to so many people over the years and read so many posts but nothing ever worked. Then, as a result of one of the posts I read here, I stuck my thumb drive into my computer, opened up its file, dragged one of the .VEM "corrupted" files onto my computers desktop and, voila, it converted to a .doc and it opened Happy Five years of frustration has finally been put to rest. I immediately dragged all of my other .VEM corrupted files onto my desktop and, after confirming they all had the proper .doc extension again, saved them onto a portable hard drive and am now throwing out my sony thumb drive.
