The files are the ones ending with *.CAK although they seem to be the same
thing as standard *.CPK (Cinepack) files. I was able to view the clips right
off the disc with a CPK viewer utility. When using a CPK to AVI converter,
the result is the same - the audio soundtrack was still a short blurb of
static - the software defaults to the sampling rate at 44MHz and I suspect if
we can bring it down to 22MHz or 11MHz then the problem would be fixed.

Both CPK utilities I used require the codec from the 1st build of Windows 95
(the file name is "iccvid.dll" found in the C:\Windows\System subdirectory).

Thanks,

Eddie
