corrupt Sound Tracker song disks

Years ago I transferred my old Amiga 500 diskettes to adf files. Among them many Sound Tracker diskettes with original songs! Unfortunately, two of them do not read. This is what happens: Having loaded Sound Tracker from the original ST00 diskette, I change to the new one (on df0). The song list loads properly, but when I click on a title, instead of starting to load, I get a blank-black channels, and the system hangs. I see at adf opus that the files contain information, they are not 0 bytes. Question is, is there a way to load the files? Maybe trying from pro tracker (can pro tracker load ST songs?) Or, if it's a header/file syntax problem, maybe someone could try to fix it? Please help me restore my childhood memories!

id suggest uploading the adf’s to your dropbox or something and posting the links to them. I don’t think anyone can even attempt to answer your question without looking at the disk images. Could just be the tracker format of the files, could be they are damaged in some way. But the easiest way is let people have a go with the real files. Someone might find a solution for you.

Well, I just took a look into your two supplied floppies.
All the song files are compressed. They contain the string 'PACK' at offset 0x18 (decimal 24).

Unfortunately, I don't know which packer uses this id string. Someone has an idea?
