   I have a stack that was made in HyperCard; It contains some sound files.
When I open it up in Revolution, Application Overview says the sounds are
there, but they wont play at all; no matter what I do. Any ideas?

The sounds normally created in HC are strictly Mac  monophonic .snd  files,
and cannot be played on a PC at all. Your best bet for conversion is
probably converting them to QT .mov files with QT Pro and a XCMD on a Mac,
then taking them to your Rev stack folder or creating a filepath. You may be
able to convert them to .wav or mp3 files on a Mac as well, but I'll bet
finding  translator/conversion software for converting .snd files on a PC
will be difficult if not impossible.
