what is a .sds file?

An SDS file is data in MIDI format, and it normally consists of standardized System Exclusive messages (often abbreviated as SysEX) that are dumped from a hardware device or an audio program embedded with support for various software and hardware samplers. These files do not consist of actual audio data. Rather, these files are in a data format that is used by an SDS application. This type of applications is made up of a collection of games and other simple applications that consists of compressed data. Sounds, images and program settings are compressed pieces of data that are loaded and extracted during runtime. Because SDS programs load SDS files automatically, these files are not to be opened or extracted manually by the user.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .sds files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .sds. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
