Daft noob question

I'm burning FLAC files to CD using burnatonce. Before it burns the CD, it converts the flac files to .cda files. Is the ok? Most forums I've read suggest converting FLAC to WAV. What's the difference? What is better .cda or WAV? Thanks for any answers, I don't mind if you laugh at me!

.cda is an CD audio file. Every burner has to convert any file to .cda before burning (including .wav). So don't worry about it.

Thanks. So there's no advantage converting FLAC to WAV before .cda?
