Here's what I got. Audio files that I managed to rescue from a 12 yr old data cd.  Back then I had a powermac with 8.5 os and I don't recall which copy of toast I had. I am able to use a program to open the files but they are compressed so it sounds like high speed fast forward aka nasty.
I don't have the mac anymore, the files should be sound designerII files(.sd2) and I do kinda remember compressing the files but I don't remember if it was ProTools(sound designer) or if it was Toast that compressed the files.  I am on windows XP so if it was Toast that compressed them I would like to know how I can get them uncompressed?

Toast will create a .sd2f file as a audio CD "disc image" but does not compress the audio.
I'm just a fellow Toast-user so please don't blame Roxio for any misguidance I may provide. And do let me know if your issue gets solved. Cheers from Eugene, Oregon!

Thanx, I'm leaning towards Pro Tools as being the culprit of the compression as other files were not compressed.
