What is MDX file?

An MDX file (Extended Media Descriptor also known as Media Data eXtended) is a disc image typically generated by the Daemon Tools program. The file contains disc data and volume formatting. MDX files can serve as virtual drives in order to emulate the original discs.

Differences between MDX, MDF and MDS files

The MDX format was developed as a new, better version of the MDF and MDS formats. The difference is that in a single MDX file, there is a complete set of data of a disc image, while in the older versions data had to be divided into two files – MDF and MDS. MDF and MDS always had to occur together, if not, it was impossible to read the image.

MDX files can be freely converted into ISO and also the reversed process is possible.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the MDX file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the MDX file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the MDX file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the MDX file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the MDX file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
