CDA is a format that refers to a shortcut to an audio track on an audio compact disc and does not contain actual audio data. CDA files can only be opened when the correct CD is inserted into the CD-ROM. There are many programs that are compatible with the CDA format; they are: Apple iTunes, Microsoft Windows Media Player, Nullsoft Winamp Media Player 5.6, RealNetworks RealPlayer,VLC media player, J. River Media Center, and many others.
When you rip an audio CD, the music is saved in formats other than CDA. Usually, those are WMA or WAV. In certain cases users prefer to convert CDA into OGG, compressed audio file that is similar to MP3, but sounds better. The OGG format is supported by numerous computer-based and portable music players. They are Nullsoft Winamp Media Player 5.6, Roxio Creator 2012, PCF Miro, MPlayer, Foobar2000, BS.Player, Xion Audio Player, VideoLAN VLC media player, Microsoft Windows Media Player with DirectShow filter, and RealNetworks RealPlayer with Xiph OGG plugin.
