Hello there, on my "dvd rw drive (d) audio cd" i have 10 tracks as follows: Track00 and so on. and have the same thing on BD-RE Drive (E) audio cd. I cant play these files and cant get rid of them as i have tried deleting them to no avail. I have tried opening them with different players and to no avail. Can someone put me on the correct path to either playing them or getting rid of them. They are not anything that i have put on my computer as this is a new computer.Thanks Grassy

.cda files are not playable; they are "pointers" that allow you to select different "tracts" on the disc.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

FWIW: .cda files are produced when a user attempts to copy a CD and, as stated, are not playable.

The only way to move those files properly...from a CD...is to rip them, using appropriate software. The resulting files will not exhibit the .cda extension and will playable, movable, etc.
