Opening cda files

Have a problem opening a .cda file? We collect information about file formats and can explain what cda files are. Additionally we recommend software suitable for opening or converting such files.

What is the .CDA file type?

The CDA file extension stands for the audio CD format as represented by Microsoft Windows. These files are automatically created by the operating system when you open an Audio CD on your computer. CDA files have small size and act like shortcuts for the tracks located on the associated disc.

Files with the .cda extension cannot be considered as audio files since they do not contain any music information at all. Instead, they include track times and some indexing information necessary to access the corresponding tracks on the CD.
