DaemonTools or FantomCd can mount them,so you can acces them as files on a regular cd…:slight_smile:

I dont know if this will help you on an APPLE if thats the case ,but…

there are a few ways to open it on a PC, WinISO will let you open and manage what is inside

or as stated daemon tools -which makes a virtual optical(cd-ROM,DVD-ROM) drive on your PC -to use this method you will need the appropriate *.CUE file that is a editable text file that will tell Daemon tools how to mount the IMAGE (image=BIN)

you can use CloneCD to copy on the fly if you like

also make sure the CUE and BIN are in the same folder
once mounted it acts like a CD in every way so if you arent familliar with the site you downloaded the BIN from ,i would suggest using TweakUI to shut off AUTORUN ,and running a Virus scan on the Virtual drive

Nero can also burn the BIN direct as long as you have the CUE although i have not bothered doing it yet

anyways i hope this can help ,and thanks for the link to CD mage ill check that out too :slight_smile:

I simply use stuffit expander, you can find it here : http://www.stuffit.com/expander/

It also opens any .sit or .hqx file. Hope it helps
