DVD File - opening and understanding

Did your computer fail to open a DVD file? We explain what they are used for and recommend software that we know can open or otherwise handle your .DVD files.

What is a DVD file?

Files that contain the .dvd file extension are commonly associated with the CloneCD DVD burning software. When a user copies and burns a DVD using the CloneCD application, the file with the .dvd extension is used to burn the selected data to the user's disc. The DVD file does not contain any actual media data. Only the data that is required to burn the selected media to the user's chosen disc.

The .dvd extension is also used for driver files for devices that are used with the MS-DOS operating system. These DVD files allow for communication between the MS-DOS operating system and the associated hardware device.
