.dwd File Extension

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

what is a .dwd file?

A DiamondWare digital audio file is stored in the DWD format and used as audio files by the DiamondWare application, which is a program designed for integrating telephone functionalities into computer systems and networks. This means the DiamondWare program can be used to forward phone calls transmitted through telephone lines to a designated standalone computer or to multiple network computers with this program installed in the system. The required configurations and settings for this setup can be made through the GUI (Graphical User Interface) of the Diamondware software, and headsets should be connected to computers when doing this. The Diamondware application converts the audio data transmitted from telephone lines to the DWD (Diamondware digital audio) format, so the software can output the data in an audio format that can be processed by the system and played through the speakers of the headset. Sound collected by the microphone of the headset is then recorded in a DWD file, which is then converted into an analog format that can be transmitted through telephone lines and processed by the phone. The DYA application can be used to open and view the content of files appended with the .dwd extension.

a word of warning

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