File Extraction

So I'm kind of new into this whole thing, dug out all my old 3DO game discs looking for distinguishing ringtones for my phone no less. :b

So I've found the jewel of converting the aifc to raw and from there to whatever else, but I've noticed there are some games that do not use this type of separated file system. For example Pataank, (which I would love to get those video clips out of too) the best guess I have is this huge file. Is there a way to get into that and separate out what I'm looking for? Or how about Twisted? which appears to just be one big file all on its own?

Anyone have more insight into what tools or utilities I can use to really dig into these files and get to the good stuff? :)

Any help appreciated,

Thanks BryWI! That was it exactly. It got into the paataank stream and pulled the audio out perfectly. Have to see what it can to do twisted if anything later.

Not that it's of any consequence now, but I uploaded the soundtrack for Pataank in this thread:

I have a disk image now that I need to replace that upload with though as that upload was of compressed audio.
