    I'm trying to rip a track from Just Dance 4.

    I've used WiiScrubber and extracted JD4.wii.wav.bf from the ISO. Its a 445 Meg file.

    I've opened this with Goldwave, but when opening Goldwave asks me to chose options on the following:

    File type: Raw (snd, raw) / Dialogic (vox)
    Attributes: PCM signed/unsigned 8/12/16/24/32 bit etc
    Rate (Hz):

    I've selected a few and listened to the audio, it sounds pretty messed up but I'm sure the audio is in the file - I think I just need to select the correct attributes and rate.

    Does anyone know what I need to select? or have any other ideas?

    Cheers

    HCS64's vgmstream should play the files - just rename the extension to .sns and use the command line decoder (or something like Winamp's disk writer) to convert them to wave files.

    I've tried opening the file in Winamp and nothing happens. I've also tried using the command line and I get "failed opening jd4.sns".

    Any other ideas?

    Agh, didn't notice the .bf (bigfile archive) extension there.

    You could try extracting it with bigfat or bfbs from HCS's tools page (http://hcs64.com/vgm_ripping.html), otherwise I haven't a clue, sorry.

    Couldn't get those tools to do anything. They close as soon as I open them, and I can't find a guide.

    Thanks for the help anyway.
