Short for the European Copyright Directive of 2001, the implementation of the [COLOR=#0000ff]WIPO Treaties[/COLOR] for the European Union; similar to the [COLOR=#0000ff]DMCA[/COLOR] in the U.S. Also referred to as the EUCD (European Union Copyright Directive).

I get the feeling there might be quite a few acronyms with ECD. Do you have a context for this? My first thought was extended CD which has some games and video on it for your computer.

I think it's actually Enhanced CD and means there is probably video or CD-ROM content on it.

Sorry. I was looking for a Katie Melua CD Call Off The Search and the best priced one was an ECD. I wondered if this would play on an ordinary CD player.

ECD's do play on ordinary CD players, but not the enhanced parts, such as CD-ROM content.

Thank you Rayman. I'll buy the ECD then because it's cheaper than the CD.

BUT - ECD's dont always play in PCs !!The CDROM part must, of course, but not always the music.

Several EMI discs a year or so ago had problems with PC playback, something to do with the copy protection that *may* or may not also be added.
