.cidb File Extension

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

what is a .cidb file?

The CIDB file extension is a data format associated to iTunes CD Information. CIDB files and iTunes were developed by Apple Corporation. These files contain CD information like album and track names downloaded from the CDDB (Compact Disc Database) and CD and track names for burned CDs. They are referred to as "CD Info.cidb" by default which can be found in Mac OS X in the file path "/Users/username/Library/Preferences" folder. In Windows XP, they are located in "\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes" directory. In Windows Vista, they are stored in the "/Users/username/AppData/Roaming/Apple Computer/iTunes" folder. Files in CIDB format can be opened with Apple iTunes in Mac Os and Microsoft Windows based systems. CD Information also includes artist name, composer, disc number, genre and year. They can be retrieved from the internet or entered manually by the user. The user has to make sure that CD information is accurate particularly track names before submitting them to CDDB, otherwise Gracenote CDDB would receive incomplete information.

how to open a .cidb file?

applications that open a .cidb file

Apple iTunes

Apple iTunes

Apple iTunes is a software categorized as a media player computer application for playing, downloading, organizing and saving various files, which are digital audios and videos. There is also a feature that enables content managements from iPod models, iPad Touch, iPhone, and iPad. This software can be connected to iTunes Store so a user can download or buy music, videos, audio books, ringtones or even games for iPod in just a click of a button. In fact, it allows the download of various applications via the App Store for some Apple devices, which are iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad. The downside of this is that it does not enable music transfer from one device to another unit. This program is compatible for Apple’s Mac OS X version 10.6.8 and other later versions, but also works for current Windows OS such as Windows 7, Windows XP and Windows Vista, then for the upcoming Windows 8.

a word of warning

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