What is an .CDA file?
.CDA is CD Audio Track Shortcut
Shortcut to a track on an audio CD; plays the referenced track on the CD when opened; therefore, the CD must be in the CD-ROM drive for the shortcut to work correctly.
CDA files do not contain actual audio data. Songs "ripped" from an audio CD are usually saved as uncompressed .AIF or .WAV files.
