How to manually recover audio notes in Word?

    I've been recording some of my lectures with the notebook function of Word MAC 2004, but I'm recently having the problem that sometimes, when I try to stop the recording, the program becomes unresponsive (with the dreadful beach ball spinning forever). I've tried already to patiently wait for something to happen but I ultimately have to force quit the application.

    The main issue is that, even if I've just saved the file before trying to stop recording, when I reopen the file, the audio notes in the document are always lost (or at least unaccessible from word) :confused:. Is there a way to manually retrieve this recordings... I mean, they must be around somewhere in the hard drive (since when the program is still frozen you can see they were taking several megabytes).

    I would really appreciate suggestions, there are several important lectures that I need for revising and, since I was relying in the audio notes, my manual notes are not as complete as they should.
