It's called CDDA and is (at least when ripped to a computer) raw 16 bit
data with no header.

The high and low bytes may be either way around.

There are subcodes on the disc containing information about the byte
order and other things, but these are not displayed by normal audio
software.

WAV and AIFF files are exactly the same but with a header - one of these
has the low bytes first, the other the high, to suit the CPUs on PCs and
Macs.
