I suspect your problem had nothing to do with .cda files.   DD doesn't know 
one file from another.

But you mentioned it was a game cd (I think) and I suspect that there was 
some 'protection' scheme in place such as a non-written part of the CD where 
something should have been written.  When DD runs into that its going to 
create a big-time error.
