Developer: H+H
File type: Virtual CD File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .vcd. Files with the file extension .vcd can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .vcd files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .vcd file?

A virtual CD file is categorized as a disk image file that can be used to access the content of a CD or DVD without the need for a physical CD-ROM/RW or a DVD-ROM/RW drive. These virtual CD files can be placed in a directory of the hard disk and played from this source location using a supported application that can be used to open and view the types of files stored in the virtual CD image file. These virtual CD files are integrated with disk image compression and formatting specifications used for archiving different types of files and even the entire content stored in optical disks and hard drives into one virtual CD file which can be mounted in a virtual drive to access the data saved in the virtual CD file. Data encoding standards are also implemented into these virtual CD files that allow its content to be stored in the VCD file format. Affixed with the .vcd extension, many Microsoft Windows-based systems are implemented with support for detecting these VCD files as actual optical disks even when these virtual CD files are stored in directories of hard drives connected to the computer.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .vcd files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .vcd. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
