For audio cds, it's not really a file.  Therefore, there is no 
filename extension (altho, Windows might report it as .cda, this is 
really not the case because audio tracks on cds are way different 
from actual files you would have on your hard drive or even a data 
cd).  If you put mp3s into a cd writing utility and then tell it to 
burn them as an audio cd that you would play in regular cd players, 
what happens is that this program is decompressing the mp3s and then 
converting them into audio cd format as it writes them to the cd.
