    From the Ableton docs:
    Sampler supports the following sample formats:
    • GigaStudio
    • EXS
    • SoundFont
    • Kontakt (version 4.2.1 or earlier)
    • AKAI S1000
    • AKAI S3000
    Note that in Live 9 and later, the import function is no longer available for Akai S - series samples. It is possible however to import samples using an older version of Live, such as Live 8 (available in our download archive).

    Kontakt .nki files can be imported only from .nki files that are of version 4.2.1 or older. This is because Native Instruments changed the Kontakt file format with version 4.2.2.

    Live supports the following sample loop formats:
    • REX files are supported in Live Standard and Suite. These can be loaded into audio tracks and will play at the tempo of the Set. REX files can also be sliced to a new MIDI track.
    • ACID Loops are supported, as they are WAV files with additional ACID loop tags. Live will not, however, make use of the specific ACID loop tags.
    • Soundtrack Loops are supported as they are in AIFF format. Live will not, however, make use of the specific Soundtrack loop tags.

    Good to know it still works with v9!
    If your x86 OS can't read the ISO file system then I would say it is in AKAI format.
