Default WINXP SAVE SESSION COPY IN - PT 5 or 4 File Types

If I am using the Windows version of 6.4 Pro Tools and I choose SAVE SESSION COPY IN, and all my audio clips for the project are in BWF, what happens when I choose the target session copy of a) Pro Tools 5.0 Session, b) Pro Tools 4 session ?

Im pretty sure v 4 does NOT support BWF audio files. What happens to my audio files when I SAVE SESSION COPY IN as the older formats?

Default Re: WINXP SAVE SESSION COPY IN - PT 5 or 4 File Types

It saves the session as a PT 4 session and exports all the audio as regular WAV files (not BWF files)... the Mac/PC compatibility box is disabled since PT 4 on the Mac can't work with WAV files.

Default RAIL - HELP HELP

Confirm if I am correct then RAIL:

From PT WIN 6.4:
SAVE SESSION COPY IN [Choosing BWF(*.WAV) as File Type]
Pro Tools 5.0 Session (*.pt5) - all audio will be converted to WAV(*.WAV)
Pro Tools 4 24-Bit Session (*.p24) - all audio will be converted to WAV(*.WAV)
Pro Tools 4 16-Bit Session (*.pt4) - all audio will be converted to WAV(*.WAV)

Notice audio is NOT converted to BWF(*.WAV) since PT 4 & 5.0 cannot read this.

From PT MAC 6.4:
SAVE SESSION COPY IN [Choosing BWF(*.WAV) as File Type]
Pro Tools 5.0 Session (Don't know the file ext.) - (Same as above WAV(*.WAV)
Pro Tools 4 24-Bit Session (") - (")
Pro Tools 4 16-Bit Session (") - (")
Pro Tools 3.2 Session (") - (")

Is this correct Rail?
