Opening CCD files

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

What is the .CCD file type?



The .ccd filename extension stands for the CloneCD Image Control File (.ccd) file type/format. It is part of the CloneCD image format (CCD/SUB/IMG) introduced by CloneCD, a legally controversial proprietary CD/DVD imaging software by SlySoft (Elaborate Bytes).

A complete CD/DVD disk image created with CloneCD or Virtual CloneDrive (VCD) consists of three files (.ccd, .sub, .img), all with the same filename and in the same directory. To mount or burn a CCD/SUB/IMG image, one has to open the .ccd file. While the actual data resides in the .img file, the small text-based .ccd file carries vital disk information (e.g., track layout) that is critical to processing or burning the image. A missing .ccd file effectively renders the affected disk image useless.



CCD/SUB/IMG images are supported by several popular CD/DVD image and virtual-drive tools. The CloneCD image format is often used for making images of copy-protected CD/DVD disks (e.g., making backup copies of Sony PlayStation game disks). Using certain tools, CloneCD images (.ccd + .img/.sub) can be converted into standard ISO-9660 CD/DVD images (.iso) and other formats.
