Audio .cda files not recognized on my new computer.   Audio .CDA files are recognized on my old computer using the identical Roxio software (Easy CD & DVD Creator 6).   I want to convert the audio .cda files to audio mp3 files. It works on my old computer but not my new one.  Your assistance is appreciated. Thanks, Tom

.cda is not really a file format,rather it's like a menu of the tracks on the cd.The tracks are actually PCM or WAV.Either way you should be able to see the tracks and pull them off the cd onto your drive,converting them to whatever format as they rip.

Yes, the files on the CD are named "track01.CDA" etc.
Roxio Easy CD & DVD Creator 6 recognizes these .cda files on my old computer and I can change the files to mp3's.  However the exact same program, Roxio Easy CD & DVD Creator 6, does not recognize the same track01.cda on my new computer.
Any thoughts on this?
Thanks,  Tom

"CD Audio (.cda) tracks are audio files that can be stored on CD media. The .cda files are representations of CD audio tracks and do not contain the actual pulse code modulation (PCM) information. Cda files can be played only from a CD-ROM. To test a .cda file, either try to play a different .cda file from your CD-ROM or try to play a .cda file from a different CD-ROM. Copied from the CD-ROM to the hard disc it cannot be played. This is format used for encoding music on all commercial compact discs. If you buy a CD from a store, the music on that CD is stored in CDA format."

Are you able to play cd's on your new computer?If you can then it's recognizing the files.I guess I'm not understanding what you're saying by your computer doesn't recognize them.When you put a cd in does Roxio see the tracks?

I completely understand the problem, and I'm having the same one (w/ v.6).  Same computer that used to work just fine, though.  Now, Roxio will read the CD but won't recognize .cda files as audio format.  If I tell it to look for "all files" instead of "audio files," it DOES show the .CDAs (but they're NOT showed [e.g., titles/etc.] when I look for "audio files": the file list is BLANK).  However, even though it does SHOW the .CDAs when I look for "all files," it still doesn't recognize/treat/use them as audio files.

I'd still very much like to understand how to fix this problem!

Aloha,

pt,

This topic has been dead for over 6 1/2 years, and the original poster never logged in after his first day.  We're probably best to treat your post as a new topic, as it should have been, and we can carry on with your problem since the OP has left the house.

Now, you say you're running version 6 - what program or menu item are you running?
You say "used to work just fine". What changes have you made to your computer, its Operating System, or its installed programs between the time when it used to recognize .CDA placemarkers as audio files, and the time when you first noticed it didn't do that any more?
