Given that a .cda file is a direct representation of the contents of an
audio CD, it makes little sense to burn a data disk with .cda files on
it. Maybe as a backup, but not to play them. Does *any* CD player, no
matter how old, actually play .cda data files?

I find your interpretation of his question to be very unlikely;
certainly much less likely than the alternative which is that he wants
to burn audio CDs. It is certainly dubious enough that you maybe
shouldn't be telling people to "learn to read".

Regards, K.

PS: He didn't say CDROM reader, he said CD player. These are very
different things.
