Notes about the CDA file extension:



Incorrect file associations could be the result of underlying issues within your PC system. As such it is highly recommended to scan your PC for invalid registry entries, unused processes and other unfavourable system settings to identify slowdown issues.

The CDA file type is primarily associated with 'CD Audio Track Shortcut'. A .CDA shortcut file is a small file generated by Microsoft Windows for each track on an audio CD. The file contains indexing information and are named in the form TRACK##.CDA. The files contain no audio and are basically useless when a CD is ripped to a computer's hard drive or converted to MP3 and written out as files to a CD. Some software makes it appear the files contain audio as recorded material starts when a .CDA file is clicked on but that's just the software operating and not music in the .CDA file.
