File Extension GCD

.GCD File

File extension: GCD
File type: General Content Descriptor

Notes about the GCD file extension:

To open this file type, a required software must be installed. Without it you only see a Windows message "The following file cannot be opened" (Windows 7) or "How do you want to open this file?" (Windows 10) if you double-click the file. There click on "More apps" and choose a suitable software to view such files on your PC or from email attachments.

The GCD file type is primarily associated with 'General Content Descriptor' by Sprint Nextel. A General Content Descriptor (GCD) file is similar to a JAD file. While a JAD describes a J2ME MIDlet for download, a GCD describes downloads like ringtones and pictures. GCD's are plain text files and you can create them using any simple text editor like Windows Notepad.
