.CDA files are not, strictly speaking, a file at all. Taken more accurately they resemble Microsoft's shortcut files in that they point to information rather than containing it themselves. In the case of a shortcut, this means a pointer to a file somewhere on your computer, a .CDA file serves the same purpose for an audio CD and simply points to the track and sector on a disc where a song begins.

Well you can be more polite to the people who try to help you for starters. Now he is right try Power DVD or DivX.
