View Full Version : cda files on local drive

08-03-2009, 02:57 PM
I'm working on a application for ripping cd's in C-sharp. To get over the limitation in dbPowerAmp of ripping from a CD-R over a network, I am trying to copy the files from the CD to a local directory. The files copy as .cda and I'm getting an error from dbPowerAmp that it will only work with .cda files on a CD.

Does anyone have any ideas or a solution?

Nothing can rip then because the files you have copies are 2KB where as an audio track is 30,000KB

Thank you for your quick reply. Do you have any suggestions for me? I'm not sure what else to try if I can't rip cd's off a network drive. I have tried mapping the drive as well and that gives the same error.

.CDA "files" are just bookmarks/shortcuts/links to tracks on an audio CD. Copying them is pointless.

I believe there are driver issues associated with ripping CDs off a non-local drive.
