The AKAI or E-MU Sample CDROMS works only with their samplers. If you try to put a CD in your computer you will see nothing because computers CD-ROM can't read it.
If you want to use CD-ROM you can by only these that contains "wav" files.
But you can find in www a lot of free samples to download. I search a lot for samples and i found a good place. If you want to work with extra samples, i am giving you some informations that i hope to be useful:

Sound Bridge undertands only wav, aif or Sample Cell/II instrument samples.
Generaly, if you need drum or FX sounds, the wav files are alright. But the instruments sounds needs more than one sample because at the very high or low notes will sound funny. (it is better to read some basic info for sampling)

The site contains all the samples you can imagine. But they are "xi" files and you need "ins" files (Sample Cell/II instrument)because only these the Sound Bridge understand.

1. Go to
2. Download Awave v4.9
3. After downloading, open the program and read how to convert these *.xi samples to *.ins samples.
4. After this you will have a multisample that the Sound Bridge can understand.
5. Then you can open Sound Bridge and import this multisample for compiling into a Flash Ram card.
6. If you don't know i must tell you that you need 70min to compile 8MB in you card with midi in/out. If you get the serial driver and the serial cable you need the half, about 30min.
7.About Awave:I found it better to register it because it is very usefull for our work and it was very annoying to see all the time the prohibitive signals.

If you need anything write to me.
