BIN and CUE simple tutorial.

SHARE this post!

There always seems to be the question “what do I do with a .bin and .cue file” in these forums so I figured I would write a quick and simple tutorial. Please feel free to add more.

So you have downloaded two files, one with a .bin extension and one with a .cue extension. “What do I do with these?” you ask. There are a number of options.

BURN TO CD

You will need either NERO, CDRWIN or FIREBURNER to burn the file.

To burn with NERO:
Start NERO, choose FILE, choose BURN IMAGE, locate the .cue file you have and double click it. A dialog box will come up, for anything other than music make sure you choose DISC-AT-ONCE (DAO). You can also turn off the simulation burn if you so choose.
Then burn away.

To burn with CDRWin:
Start CDRWin, choose the button on the top left, choose LOAD CUESHEET, press START RECORDING.

To burn with Fireburner:
Start Fireburner, click on the button on the bottom left corner “VISUAL CUE BURNER/BINCHUNKER”, press the right mouse button and choose LOAD TRACKS FROM .CUE and choose the correct .CUE file, press the right mouse button again and chooseselect “Burn/Test Burn”, choose DISK AT ONCE (DAO), disable TEST BURN and MULTISESSION, press OK.

.CUE ERRORS
The most common error you will get with a .cue file is when it points to an incorrect path. This is easily fixed. Find the .bin file, copy the exact title including the .bin extension. Now find the .cue file, open the .cue file using notepad. It should look similar to this:

FILE “name of file.bin” BINARY
TRACK 01 MODE2/2352
INDEX 01 00:00:00
TRACK 02 MODE2/2352
INDEX 00 00:04:00
INDEX 01 00:06:00

Delete everything in the quotes, in this case we would
delete name of file.bin. Now place the title you copied
in between the quotes. Save the changes and close out.
Thats it, your .cue file should work now.

OTHER WAYS TO USE .BIN & .CUE FILES

VCDGear:
This program will allow you to extract MPEG streams from CD images, convert VCD files to MPEG, correct MPEG errors, and more.

Daemon Tools:
This program creates a virtual drive on your PC which will allow you to “mount” the .cue file and use whatever is in the .bin file without having to burn it to a cd.

ISOBuster:
This program will allow you to “bust” open the .bin file and extract the files within the .bin.

  13. I think that what you said made a lot of sense.
    But, consider this, suppose you typed a
    catchier title? I ain’t saying your content is not solid, but suppose you added
    a title that grabbed folk’s attention? I mean BIN and CUE
    simple tutorial. – eXPert Tech is a little vanilla.
    You should glance at Yahoo’s home page and note how they
    create post titles to grab viewers to open the links.
    You might add a related video or a pic or two to
    get readers interested about what you’ve written. Just my opinion,
    it might bring your blog a little livelier.

  14. I have been browsing on-line greater than three hours these days, yet I never discovered any attention-grabbing article like

    bloggers made good content material as you did, the net will probably be
    much more helpful than ever before.

  17. Link exchange is nothing else but it is simply placing the other person’s webpage link on your page
    at proper place and other person will also do same in support of
    you.
