Bin & Cue files

I have a movie download which came in a bin and cue file. When I try to burn it to a DVD (using Nero 7 or Roxio 10, it tells me to burn it to a CD.
Can anyone tell me how to convert the bin/cue files to AVI or some other compatible (with Nero or Roxio) format?

Forget those programs and use ImgBurn. Once installed, double-click the cue file and it should set up the burn for you.

ImgBurn does not do it … it just burns the 2 files (bin and cue) onto a DVD disk.
When I double click the cue file, it brings up Nero.

OK then try opening the cue file directly from ImgBurn. Use ‘File’ -> ‘Browse for source file’ and select the .cue file. If that doesn’t work then try opening the .bin file and burning that.

The .bin file contains the movie and the .cue file just sets up the burning parameters for it.

I tried just that; unfortunately, it just burned both the cue and bin files on to the DVD.
Maybe I am not following the correct procedure, or not selecting the correct options?

In Nero, choose “open” and browse to the cue file. When the cue is selected, it should then load the bin and be ready to burn.

With ImgBurn, choose “Write image file to disc” and browse to the cue file, it should then load the bin and be ready to burn.

Dogg:
When I try your suggestion using Nero, it brings up a screen saying it will burn to a CD. I need to burn to a DVD.
When I try your suggestion using ImgBurn, I get the message: Your image doesn’t appear to be of the correct format for burning onto a DVD.
The files (cue and bin) are a movie I downloaded. Not a CD.

That’s because bin/cue is a CD format.

Try mounting the image using Daemon Tools or Alcohol. Then use Nero or ImgBurn to open the “disc” and create a new image.

Are either of those freeware?

I don’t believe either are free. All you need is CD/DVD emulation software.

Is this a VCD?

No…it is apparently a DVD in bin/cue format.

What exactly do you mean by “mount the image?” (in Alcohol) Which option or menu item is it?
Thanks.

When you install Alcohol 120%, it will by default create a “virtual drive”. You can then right click on the cue file and choose “mount image”.

I don’t see that option … there is “… load into new emulated drive…”

that should also work

[QUOTE=Dogg;2203841]that should also work[/QUOTE]
Thanks for your patience.
OK, now I’ve got some files on the emulated drive.
What exactly do I do to get them into DVD format, or what option in Nero or ImgBurn do I use to “open” the disc and create a new image?

I’ve got some files on the emulated drive

What are the files? List them.

On my emulated drive, the following folders and contents:
EXT, containing
LOT_X.VCD
PSD_X.VCD

MPEGAV, containing
AVSEQ01.DAT

SEGMENT, containing nothing (empty)

VCD, containing
ENTRIES.VCD
INFO.VCD
LOT.VCD
PSD.VCD

Get the free app I linked to. Choose bin -> mpeg, tick "fix mpeg errors’ and see what happens. It should extract the mpeg file.

Or copy the AVSEQ01.DAT file to your HD, rename to .mpg and see if it plays.

You might also try Nero again and see if it will accept the AVSEQ01.DAT as is.
