A CCD file is a disc image of a music CD created by the Windows program CloneCD. You can burn the CCD disc image directly to a blank CD using a CD burner and a program that supports CCDs.
What is the.CCD file type? The.ccd filename extension stands for the CloneCD Image Control File (.ccd) file type/format. It is part of the CloneCD image format (CCD/SUB/IMG) introduced by CloneCD, a legally controversial proprietary CD/DVD imaging software by SlySoft (Elaborate Bytes). A complete CD/DVD disk image created with CloneCD or Virtual CloneDrive (VCD) consists of three files (.ccd,, ), all with the same filename and in the same directory. To mount or burn a CCD/SUB/IMG image, one has to open the.ccd file. While the actual data resides in the file, the small text-based.ccd file carries vital disk information (e.g., track layout) that is critical to processing or burning the image. A missing.ccd file effectively renders the affected disk image useless.
CCD/SUB/IMG images are supported by several popular CD/DVD image and virtual-drive tools. The CloneCD image format is often used for making images of copy-protected CD/DVD disks (e.g., making backup copies of Sony PlayStation game disks). Using certain tools, CloneCD images (.ccd + /) can be converted into standard ISO-9660 CD/DVD images () and other formats.
