File extension mdx is nowadays mostly known for its use for Media Data eXtended format.

MDX is a proprietary disk image file format developed by DT Soft Ltd., the company behind Daemon Tools and Astroburn applications.

MDX file format is used the same way as MDS/MDF images. It was created to hold the information in one file, instead of two.

As an .mdx file contains major information about image data structure, it cannot be split to several parts.

Because MDX is a proprietary format, it is currently only supported in DaemonTools and Astroburn software.
