If your refering to the files displayed when you browse the CD with Explorer they are Audio CD tracks so they will display as .cda like all other Audio CD tracks. The CD+G audio tracks just contain the graphics (lyrics) in unused sub-code of the Audio track (Windows doesn't know the difference). Only certain readers and specific software will read and process the graphics sub-code. All other software including Windows and most media players just ignores the sub-code. There are actually no files on an Audio CD, so Windows creates 44 byte files to provide information on the tracks on the CD.
