It is an ISO an image of a cd and needs to be burned onto a cd or monted as a virtual cd with software like daemon tools or similar.. If you have Nero I think you can select Burn Image from the File menu and create the disk otherwise there are other Bin capable softwares available

Actually, to burn to cd I believe you need the .cue file that accompanies the .bin file.

I think it's still possible though to mount image using a virtual device like he said. Daemon Tools is what I use.

I think Blindwrite will write a pure bin file also can you convert from bin to iso with isobuster or similar software ?? ( I seem to recall this is possible)

how can i get the .cue file?
in nero, it asks for the .cue file in order to burn an image disk.
is there a program that creates this .cue file from the .bin?
or do i need to do it manually?
thanks guys,

I'm not even sure it's possible to create a .cue file from a .bin file. I believe they are seperate files.

The program I use which I would recommend to anybody and everybody is edonkey2000. You use this in conjunction with sharereactor files.

Go to edonkey2000.com and sharereactor.com and browse the website and you should be able to get it up and running.

Go to the PC GAMES section of sharereactor.com to find all the .bin and .cue files for games.

For a quick search of a file, go to jiggle.com

You don't need the .cue file. Either burn the disk directly, using the .bin file, or just load it as an image using daemon tools (which is what I do).
