you could try the easy cd - da extractor, its free off the web, converts audio files and rips cd's to various filetypes.

Thanx guys i'l have a look but none of the programs mention .cda which is the fille i'm most having trouble with.

another free converter.
.cda is just the same as a wave file, and converts with this with no problems.

Windows Media Player is all you need to convert CD Audio format into WMA. Real Player will do it if you want MP3.

Check the File Types list in WMP's options and you'll see what files it will handle. Cda is included.

Hi ade.h yes i see where your coming from, but what i really want to do is make back up copies of cds given to me but the seem to be in .cda files which dont play on my hi-fi.

If you want to make backup copies of CDs, that's easily done in WMP; I do that quite often. You just make an exact copy. If you have WMA files (or similar) that you want to put back on to CD, WMP can be used to make a CD-Audio compilation that works like a normal pre-recorded CD.

cda stands for cd audio. Converting them into anything else will not get them to play on your hi-fi. If the disks you are been given are copies, then of course, that is copyright fraud and your address is on it's way to the RIAA.
