    help with .bin and .cue files

    hey guys,

    I have thoses files...2 of them actually
    They are .bin and .cue files. They are a game and they are on my computer.In order to get it fonctioning i believe i must get them on CD. They are CD files. I have a few "other" goodies to make it work.I need assistance. How do I make it work? I have to create an ISO cd or something like this?

    Try to open the ISO file in your CD burning program, and put it on a CD.

    This goes to the Tech Help forum btw.

    I just use IsoBuster and extract the contents of those files on hard drive.

    Actually, this is the best idea. Instead of having to extract the ISO file, or burn it to a CD, Deamon-Tools creates a virtual CD-ROM with the ISO. The ISO will then act just like any other CD.

    Alcohol 120% is sweeter.

    Alcohol is great, I use it and haven't had a problem since. From here you can create virtual drives or burn the image.

    Having used both I disagree. But I kind of like being about to use all of Daemon Tool's features from the taskbar.

    You can do this from Alcohol too, the system tray icon does it all, and you can even just right click an image and mount it straight away. I also like the slick interface and the wide varity of formats supported.

    That's because there is no need to. 90% of us are using it anyways.

    So you realize the imbalance in your equation then?

    I have used Daemon tools for a long time now and IMO it's better than alcohol 120%. It 'feels' faster.

    Havent found the solution yet, TheMachine i'll contact u!

    I tried Alcohol120% but what to do with the .cue file?

    I need to burn it on a CD to make it work. Then install the game as it was an original copy.

    This is the first time I get to work with this kind of files.

    You need software that supports it. I recommend Nero:

    http://ahead.de/en/

    When burning, you point the program to the cue file. Also, you can open the cue file in a text editor. It should contain some numbers and a file path. Make sure the path points to the BIN file before burning.

    But i'm with the others. I highly recommend daemon tools. AFAIK there are only certain burners that can break copy protection (a few asus and lite-on burners I think), but using the cd image file with a virtual drive gives you an exact copy.

    EDIT: oh, and FYI if you have a BIN file without a cue, any cue file should work, provided you edit the contents like I mentioned before.

    AFAIK, the "old" burners (8X(R) or less), except Sony and Yamaha, work fine on whatever you are trying to do. 16X(R) or more, it becomes narrowed into certain brands...AFAIC, mounting images may serve as non-cd cracks, but breaking copy protection is illegal. So beware, you are being monitored...

    Using cracks in Canada isn't illegal, and moss is in Canada. Of course copying/downloading/posessing a game that you don't own is illegal here.

    And who really own a game? The creators of the game only get a portion, the company gets another portion, and the shareholders own portions of the company so they should own portions of the company's portion...then who owns the game???

    And......we all using illegal copies when you get into the servers and "claim" that we own the copy...^^
