How to convert CDA to MP3 with a CDA to MP3 Converter
This step-by-step guide will show you how to convert .cda files to .mp3 files.
What is CDA?
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. 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.
Unfortunately, your computer can't store files in CDA format, so you have to convert CDA files to another audio format such as MP3 to store on your hard disk.
