A music CD (CD-DA) contains no files. It contains a data stream which is
essentially in WAV format but with some byte transpositions. It also
contains a TOC which gives the appearance of being 'files' (.CDA
extension), but that is an artifact of the operating system. There is other
information on the disc, none of which is a file.
