What is .CDA file?

A file with the extension .cda is shortcut to a track on an audio CD on a standard “Red Book” CD-DA format audio CD. These files are shown in the directory for the CD being viewed in the format Track##.cda, where ## is the number of each individual track. The .cda files do not contain the actual PCM sound wave data, but instead tell where on the disc each track starts and stops. If the file is “copied” from the CD to the computer, it becomes useless because it is only a shortcut to part of the disc. However, some audio converter, audio editing and CD creation programs will, from the user’s perspective, load .cda files as though they are actual audio data files, and allow the user to listen to them and even convert the copied .CDA files to MP3, WAV, WMA, FLAC, etc.

Introduces the best CDA to MP3 Converter

By the help of Xilisoft CDA Converter, you can convert CDA that on a CD disk or convert copied CDA from CD disk to MP3, 320kbps MP3.
