I put a CD in CD-Drive  and the .cda-files are recognized in the Drive but MB cannot rip .cda -files


Or do I have to adjust something?

What version of MB are you using? (Help > About) INCLUDE THE LETTER (if any) AFTER THE NUMBER
How was MB installed? (Store, Installer, Portable)
Are you getting an error message?
Are you trying to create a disk with .cda files or with data files?
Please show a screenshot of your RIP settings.

Download the latest MusicBee v3.5 or 3.6 patch from here.
Unzip into your MusicBee directory and overwrite existing files.

cda is not an audio file extension like mp3 or FLAC, it's a sort of pointer that indicates the presence and placement of the music tracks on the CD.  You use MusicBee to rip them to actual audio files on your computer, using the extension and settings you've specified in Preferences/CD Ripping/encode as, which also requires your input in the File Encoders section to activate your choice of encoder.  Check out https://musicbee.fandom.com/wiki/Ripping for some basics, as well as doing a forum search for ripping a CD.

P.S.  This belongs in the "Questions" forum.
