Yeah, I think I may know why (us people with Media Player 9-10 have gotten used to this feature).

All CD Audio is *.cda anyway, regardless of how it looks when you open it from My Computer.
Newer Media Players open these like any other file though and plays them which is why they have the Media Player logo on them.

Yours mustn't have an updated media player, so if you have Windows XP, download Windows Media Player 10, or if you haven't, download Windows Media Player 9 which will have this feature, letting you access them like that

Though, what program do you use then to play media files if Media Player doesn't work? (try the new version),

and also try right clicking the CDA file and going to Open with, and choose the media player you'd normally use, clicking on 'Use this from now on' in the selection box.

I hope this helps

Hmm... an alternative program could do this for you

Try downloading CDEX:

http://cdexos.sourceforge.net/

This is a great program for ripping CD's and allows you to do many other things too, so you just insert the CD, choose options as to what to export to (mp3 and bitrate and choose a location) and then off it goes

I hope this helps
