What is an .DAB file?

.DAB is OrangeCD Catalog database

The dab file extension seems to be mainly related to OrangeCD Catalog, an advanced music database software for cataloging and organizing music collection with support for most audio formats.

The dab file contains the main OrangeCD Catalog database, used for browsing, searching and printing information about music data stored in computer.


How to open:

Use OrangeCD Catalog to open .dab database files.

How to convert:

Perhaps some database export is possible using OrangeCD, but otherwise a conversion of any kind for .dab files seems unlikely.
