What shall I do with CDA files?

First, what is a CDA file? CDA files do not contain pulse code modulation (PCM) information, and hence they can only be played from a CD-ROM. They only represent CD audio data and they cannot be played even after you have copied from a CD to a hard disk. However, you can launch a CDA file if you have a CD in your CD-ROM. You cannot play a CDA file saved on your hard drive without converting it to MP3, WAV, WMA etc. Therefore, some specialists say they are not actually audio files. The only way to test a CDA file is to either play a different CDA file from your CD-ROM or play a CDA file from a different CD-ROM.

CDA format is intended for storing audio data on commercial compact disks. CD audio requires 44.1 kHz sample rate and 16 bit sample size (2 bytes per sample). To calculate the amount of bytes per second required to record a mono tract, multiply the sample frequency rate by the amount of bytes per sample (44,1 x 2 = 88,200). The result is the amount of bytes per second required to record a mono track. A stereo track will require twice that amount.

Why Rip CD to Smaller Size Files?

Commercial CDs can hold a very limited amount of tracks. With various audio compression tools available, you can save 10 times more files on a CD or your hard drive. To rip your CDA files, insert an audio disk into your CD-ROM and use Windows Media Player. Also, there are more convenient tools that ensure best quality conversion with an opportunity of selecting bit rate, frequency and other conversion parameters.
