✔ Best Answer
You cannot normally display actual music CD tracks on your computer, the 1kb .cda tracks that you can see are simply pointers to the actual music track. As you mention that the tracks you previously saw were 4Mb, it is probable that you were looking at .mp3 files which are not as high quality as 'CD". If you think about it, a standard CD holds around 700Mb, so if an album holds 20 tracks then each track occupies around 35Mb.

There are lots of explanations about .cda files on the net, here's one for example:

"I've always been mad, I know I've been mad, like the most of us..." Pink Floyd

What did you burn & how did you burn it? It sounds like all you did was copy shortcuts to the CD.

You are right, I have met the same issue, at the same time, I can't keep the frail disc we,,. So i use the Bytecopy to convert the DVD, Blu-ray and get the lossless multi-track MKV video files, I get the video with all the disc chapters, subtitles and audio tracks.

Just FYI, MKV is not a file format, it is a container for video and audio files just like an AVI file. The files inside are lossy compression though.
