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

what is a .atrac file?

The ATRAC file extension is a data format associated to Sony's Adaptive Transform Acoustic Coding. ATRAC files and Adaptive Transform Acoustic Coding were developed by Sony in 1992. These files are audio format used by older Sony stereo systems and portable music players like MiniDisc. They occupy less space on a digital player, allowing more space for even more files than other file types allowed. They also allow a player's batteries to last longer. They can also be burned onto CDs, and played on compatible CD players. Adaptive Transform Acoustic Coding uses AA3, AT3 and OMG file extensions. AA3 format has been discontinued while OMG format is used to prevent files from being illegally copied. OMG files include the digital rights management, a copyright protection system of electronic media. AT3 format is used in PlayStation memory sticks. Files in ATRAC format can be opened with Sony SonicStage and Sony x-Application in Microsoft Windows based systems

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .atrac 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, .atrac. 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.
