.cda files don't actually exist on a standard audio CD... they're just
an abstraction used by Windows to represent tracks on a standard audio
CD, which don't correspond to files. Try browsing an audio CD in Ubuntu
with the file manager... you can't. Red Book audio CDs don't have a
filesystem, they're just plain audio.

You weren't converting cda files to mp3 files... you were ripping the
PCM data off the CD and encoding it into mp3.
