  1. .BIN is not a media format. It's a disk image format. Basically it's a snapshot of a CD/DVD. For some reason VLC will associate itself with that file type.

    What I would do is burn it to a CD or DVD using ImgBurn then see what contents are on the disk.

    Edit: Don't listen to me!
  2. It's slightly more complicated than that. Have a look at this link.
  3. can even use virtual drives by using deamon tools and mount the image required
  4. Unfortunately I cannot view your link at work, but it sparked my interest.

    I didn't realize that VLC could play a video that was imaged from a disk. So the association with .bin's makes sense... crafty!
