1. About .CDA File

A file with the extension .cda is a small (44 byte) virtual file generated by Microsoft Windows for each audio track on a standard "Red Book" CD-DA format audio CD as defined by the Table of Contents (ToC) (within the lead-in's subcode). 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 a computer, it cannot be used on its own because it is only a shortcut to part of the disc.

However, some 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. This should not be confused with the tracks actually containing the audio data on the CD.

2. Why We Need a CDA to MP3 Converter?

CDA files are not audio files, because they do not contain sampled sound at all. CDA files are just a way that Windows uses to let you access an Audio CD index. This is why if you copy a .CDA file to our hard drive and try to play it with an audio player, nothing happens. So you should need the CDA to MP3 Converter to extract audio tracks from an Audio CD.
