    I can not get my phone to play my music files. I have windows 7 and every song is in CDA form. How do I convert it to mp3 or something. I just got a replacement phone and now I cant get my music back on there. I am angered that palm is no help. Couldn't even find an email address to contact them. Please help

    There are several sites you can go to that will convert your audio/video files for you. Try googling audio converter and you should be able to find something that works for you. I've never even heard of CDA, but I'm on Vista, not 7.

    A .cda file stores the location of the track on a compact disk. It does not store any music data.

    I found a decent converter on CNET.com in the downloads section. I think it was called anyconverter.

    Anyway it was free and works well.

    But as Ryley pointed out, you won't get any audio out of the .cda file. I have Windows 7 on my laptop and haven't seen this issue. All of my audio files appear to be the proper format (AAC, MP3, WMA, WAV, etc.).

    Thanks for all the input guys. I dont know why my windows 7 makes everything a cda file and not mp3. None the less I am downloading a free converter right now. Fingers crossed its going to work!
    Thanks again guys!

    What if you rename the .cda to .mps or .wma?

    This may seem like a silly question but are you just copying and pasting the files from the CD? If so that will not work and is why you are getting .cda files. You have to use something like iTunes, Windows Media Player, Winamp, RealPlayer etc. to rip your music from your CD. Each of those programs will rip your music to the audio file type of your choosing MP3, AAC, WMA etc. And each of those types are fully compatible with your Pre.
