Most CD Writing software can read in sound files in the AIFF format (.aiff) files. I use Toast or Adaptec Jam on my Mac and Easy CD Creator on my PC to create real audio CDs that will play in any CD Player. If you're just wanting to save off the sound files on a computer only readable data CD you're probably best off sticking with .aiff files. (Unless you ant to talk compression which is a whole other subject) I'm not sure if soundbridge will allow you to pull sound samples back onto your PC or not (I get my QS8 Thursday, havn't played with it yet.) but if it does you will be able to convert it's downloaded samples into whatever sound format you wish. If it doesn't you could still run an audio cable from your synth to the line in on your PC and record the sounds there using any one of a number of sound manipulation programs. The problem with this is that you won't get a TRUE digital copy of the exact sample, but rather a digital recording of the analog signal coming out of your synth.
Hope this clears things up a bit.
