I saved some audio CDs as WAV files using Toast 8, this created SD2f files and I wonder if there is an equivalent program for PCs that can play these SD2f files without having to convert them.

Any ideas?

Thank you.

Thank you.

Quciktime should be able to work with those files. Look at this.

I went to the Quicktime site and could not find a reference for the sd2f files.  Try it or perhaps you have better luck with the search.

The infor on Quicketime lists only these;

Types of Files QuickTime Supports

You can open (import) dozens of types of media with QuickTime. Some of the formats

you can open in QuickTime include the following:

Video formats: MOV, MPEG-1, MPEG-2,1 MPEG-4, 3GPP, 3GPP2, JPEG, DV, Motion JPEG, AVI, MQV, H.264

Audio formats: AIFF/AIFC, Audio CD, CAF, MOV, MP3, MPEG-4, AU, WAV, iTunes audio

Still-image formats: BMP, GIF, JPEG/JFIF, JPEG 2000, PDF, MacPaint, PICT, PNG, Photoshop (including layers), SGI, Targa, FlashPix (including layers), TIFF (including layers)

Animation formats: Animated GIF, FLC, Flash, PICS

Other formats: KAR (Karaoke), MIDI, QuickDraw GX, QuickTime Image File,  QuickTime VR, Text


I went to Avid and searched for that term and could not find anything,

Cnet.com does not list any converters for sd2f but there are some that will convert to sd2 files.  Will that do?

Thank you sknis, very grateful for the reply.

The problem I always have with SD2fs is that although they contain wav files which are PC compatible, the SD2fs themselves don't seem to be readable other than on a MAC


Thanks for your help!

Do you know the difference between the sd2f files and the sd2 file format?  QuickTime says it will work with the sd2 files.

I don't know the difference! Is it just a question of mac/PC compatibility?

I did find this Roxio product called RecordNow Music Lab which might be able to read the files...

Half your suggestions are for Mac only.  Did you read and understand the original question?
