Default Help w/Ancient ProTools Free sessions from early 2000's

Hi,

I would like to open up some ancient PTFree sessions that I used to run on a beige G3 that had a sound card with RCA I/O back in the early 2000's when I first switched over from tape to digital. I would like to know what hardware I need to buy to be able to open these on an iMac that is maxxed out at 10.9.5. Some of the files were saved from the G3 to a windows computer that was running XP and in the process some of the session have a strange file called resourcefork. I already used rail Jon Rogut's app to convert the SDII files to wav but some were not able to be salvaged. Any help is appreciated.

I have a working Mac G4 with Pro Tools LE7.4 in the closet. You're welcome to come by sometime and see if it will open or access the sessions. PM me and I'll reply with my phone number

The last time I recovered a session like this, I had to use Soundhack to recreate the SDII resource forks before Pro Tools would recognize them.

Cool Re: Help w/Ancient ProTools Free sessions from early 2000's

I have a G4 with a bootable OS 9 partition and I can launch Pro Tools Free.
