the SSD extension of SAS-datasets are used by SAS 6.03/6.04 for MS-DOS.
If you want to read these datasets create a library whith the apropriate engine:
/* Untested */
LIBNAME OLD V604 '<your-path-to-ssd-files> ;
LIBNAME NEW '<your-path> ;
proc copy in=OLD out=NEW ;
Maybe other platforms also use the SSD extension. To find this out, use a
hex-editor and look at the first few bytes of the SSD-file. If you are lucky,
you will see the version and name of the dataset.

If I am correct in assuming that the ssd files are Unix SAS files (SAS 6.12
on Solaris uses the extension ssd01) and you are trying to read them with
SAS 6.12 for Windows, you can use proc cport and proc cimport. But you have
to proc cport them on the Unix machine first.
If you have SAS/Connect you can use proc upload and proc download. Also, a
software package called DBMS/COPY should be able to convert the files as
I'd need more specific information to help you more.
