Default Problems with Dense Sound/Music Files for "Turok - Evolution"

I've recently gotten Turok - Evolution working without the CD, but in order to keep it at a reasonable size - as in 188MB versus 1.34GB - I've had to not only rip the videos, which isn't a problem, but also the sound/music (both are kept in the same file). The sound being ripped is an issue because it contains voices which are necessary to understand how to complete certain objectives - and the game has no subtitles available!

What's worse, the individual sound/music files (they use the .tre file extension, presumably yet another proprietary format) are about 150MB individually and are extremely non-compressible, as I can only get them compressed to, at best, 98% of their original size.

If someone could help me with this conundrum, I'd greatly appreciate it!
You like manuals. You like manuals. You love them. You cannot resist manuals.
Your gameplay experience is meaningless without manuals.

I'll see if there's anything I can do, but have to clean some HDD space first (stuck with this laptop's lousy 40 GB internal drive and down to 1 GB space)
