How can I convert Mac OS9 sound files to mp3 etc?

I have a bunch of sound files in pre-OSX format, i.e. the old "Sound File" format that you manipulated using the old Font/Sound Mover desk accesory. In the OSX Finder they preview with a "Play Sound" button and play OK, but they won't import into iTunes and they won't open in Quicktime Player.

Searching in Apple discussions or Apple support draws a blank.

This program says it'll do it.

Or at least, it lists 'snd' as one of its input formats, which is what OS 9 system sounds should be.

You could try SoundCoverter - says it supports snd files, which I think are mac os 7 sound files.
