The gcd file extension was in the past used for older disk image format created by Prassi burning software (like Prassi Global-CD), a program distributed with some professional CD/RW burners.

Prassi also licensed and later sold the product, so it is highly likely that programs with different name used the same file format. Such programs like Sony CD Extreme, Veritas My CD, My CD Pro, or Sonic RecordNow! were often bundled with various DVD/RW drives.

In 2001 Veritas acquired Prassi and the company is now defunct, the original software no longer sold or supported. However some 3rd party software still support GCD format.

DVD images created in Prassi software typically had gi file extension instead.
