File extension .DVD
|Elby CloneDVD Image||SlySoft||Disk Image Files|
The DVD file type is associated with the CloneCD program, a CD and DVD burning tool from Elaborate Bytes. The file extension is created when a user clones or copies a CD or DVD using CloneCD, and the DVD Information File is saved on the source computer. Other file types created during the process are the cci, .ccd, and .img files.
A CloneCD DVD Information File contains all the details about the contents of an exact replica of a source CD or DVD, which can also be referred to as an image of the original disk. The details in the file include file attributes such as size, timestamp, etc., as well as other information such as cache settings. The data allows any duplicated CD or DVD to replicate precisely, and ensures that an exact copy is created.
Uses and Versions
DVD Information Files are made for preventing illegal applications of copyrighted media, such as movie piracy, though they can also be used for backing up essential data or installing software. It’s important that users keep original DVDs safe if they intend to store their information in a CloneCD DVD Information File.
CloneCD has enjoyed recognition worldwide since its inception in 1996. Currently, it offers three different versions: CloneCD Version 126.96.36.199 for computers running Windows 95 or newer; CloneCD Version 5.3 for computers running Windows 2000 or newer; and CloneCD Version 6.0 for computers running Windows XP or newer.
After installing the required software, the operating system will usually automatically associate an unknown file type (in this case .DVD) with the new application. If this does not happen, we can help the system a bit by selecting the software for it, which it should always use to open files with the .DVD extension.
When choosing the software we can select the system to use this software every time.
Using it for the first time it is good to check whether the .DVD file opened in the application can be read by us and opens in a way that allows us to use it. If everything is in order, select this option the next time you open a file with the .DVD extension. However, if the file has not opened correctly, we have to look for a different software, with which we can open files with the .DVD extension. Select a different software from our list and install it on your computer. After the software is installed, repeat inspection openings of a .DVD file. Sometimes you have to repeat the operation several times.
If none of the programs listed by us to work with the .DVD file has not meet your expectations, you can try searching other websites. But remember to avoid downloading programs "that can open any file". These applications not only have very limited functionality, but may also expose you to expense tens of dollars when purchasing a license.
In the vast majority of cases you will find the program dedicated to support the .DVD file, or any other file format. In addition, there is a chance that it will be a free program, and its functionality (concerning the .DVD file) will be extended to the maximum.
It is also good to check
- if the .DVD file has no errors
- or if it has been copied (or downloaded by the browser) thoroughly
