I have a .cda files on my CD, and they work; but I want the songs to work on my MP3 player, so how do I get the actual MP3 songs?
You need the original CD, and you need to rip it.

how about .cda to mp3 converter?
Again, you need the background information. Converting CD data to mp3 is called ripping; you need the CD.

Think of .cda files as hyperlinks which link to the actual songs themselves. If all you have are those files, then you cannot convert it to a mp3.

In order to convert, you need to rip (not copy) a CD. This can be done with any number of programs, the easiest and most common simply being Windows Media Player. Insert CD, click the Rip button, and click start.
