Msn file transfers

My friend is trying to send me a .cda file, a music file but it won't seem to send, it's not a short cut but when they send it, it comes up as a 1kb file which is clearly wrong, any ideas?

    i think your problem lies in that your friend needs to rip the cd tracks first to mp3 or some other format...

    Yarr, .CDA's wont play without the source CD if I remember rightly, get your friend to turn the tracks into .WMA's with Windows Media Player

    urrggghhhh no, just no, wma files are evil.

    id reccomend ripping the cd (or certain tracks) to mp3 format.

    You can find a very good (and free) cd - mp3 converter at http://cdexos.sourceforge.net
