I would like to put some .wav files on to a CD for playing in an ordinary CD player. Do I need to convert these to .cda files first if so can anyone recomend a good converter program

Hi Geoff, What application will you use to burn to CD-R discs ?

If it is something like Nero, or Roxio Easy CD Creator, you should find it will automatically burn the files for use on an ordinary player.

.CDA is simply a data representative of what the PC see's.
What happens is your burning software such as Nero, NTI CD-Maker, or Roxio CD-Creator gives you the option to create an Audio CD, which converts the MP3's and WAV's to a format readable by your stereo/discman, which is in turn seen as a .CDA
Last I checked, all .CDA's were 0kb big (But that was on Win98 about 6 months back).

Any good burning software will do it, otherwise download Windows Media Player 7 or 9 from Microsoft, it can burn :-)

Hi All

Thanks for the replys. I would be using NERO so it looks like I should be OK

if they are in wave format they dont need converting,a cd player can read em just fine.
