It's not that simple...
Windows uses Wave, Mac uses SDII.
There is a complicated way to convert them but please remeber the mac session file
itself cannot be read by PC PT (yet).

Required Software -
MacOpener, MacDrive or like (Read MacFormmated Media)
Convertion Audio program such as Cooledit (non-pro).
You also need to know the files format...
For example: Guitar_Riff_Chorus is 24bit/48khz.
You load up the file as PCM Raw into Cooledit, The program
will ask you convertion information it should 32bit and encoded
by the motorola codec (32bit is 24, 16 is 16).

Good luck!.
Just wanna do music,

I've written a little Windows program to handle the format conversion. Once you have the files on you PC via MacOpener (or whatever) you can use this program to convert from SDII (raw PCM since we have no resource fork on a PC) to Wav.

You can download my program from: http://www.io.com/~mcgriffy/audio

Please write me and tell me what you think.
