From .cda to .mp3

By mjamille28

Hi all, need your help here.. Does anybody know how to convert a .cda to .mp3? I've been trying to transfer some music on to my phone with cda extension name but i guess the phone does not recognize that file type so i need to find a way to convert it into an mp3 file. Thanks in advance..

Find the "save tracks" in the 'extras' menu. Includes your choice of bitrate rip and output file (wma, wav, mp3, etc.)

Just make sure your Nero is fully installed and not an unlicensed one or it'll never rip.

I am sure you can use Ashampoo to rip it and convert it to mp3.

Perhaps other softwares such as Nero can do it as well... I am not aware.

Google search, perhaps you find a freeware for that purpose.

yes, basically:

The .cda files are representations of CD audio tracks and do not contain the actual pulse code modulation (PCM) information.

Cda files can be played only from a CD-ROM.

This means you have to 'rip' the song from the CD using a software, there are plenty of them around the net (I've been using Soundforge and it's very cool even if maybe is quite difficult for a newbie to understand).

Sony Soundforge can do that. It extracts the audio from the CD and you can save it then in whichever format you want.
