I am very new to downloading/makingDVD/this forum…
I downloaded a film that came with cue and bin formats. I can play the movie on my PC but I just bought a new DVD writer and I would like to copy it in DVD format so I can watch the movie on TV… I tried to do it using Nero 6 but it always tries to copy on CD only format… …any suggestion? Do you know how I can make these files in DVD format?
Im guessing the file’s you have there are all you need. A *.bin file is just another type of image file like an *.iso image. Nero should be able to burn this no problem but personally i’d use DVD Decrypter to do the job. All the *.cue does is contains details about the *.bin file i.e. filename, track length and so on
thanks for the replies… …please notice that the bin file is 781MB and therefore it will not fit into a normal cd… also what shall I copy? Only the bin file or shall I do something else? Sorry I may sound dumb but it is the first time I am doing this…

The .cue file is a descriptive files that tells any burning program how to burn the .bin file.
There’s lots you can do with it.
You can mount them using daemon tools, nero imagedrive & whatnot, if you don’t want to burn them to disc.
Or failing that, you can use nero, prassi, Record now, or a myriad of other (some freeware) proggies to burn them to disc.
It’s really upto you what you want to do.
Keep in mind that .iso / .bin / .nrg files are actually a “Raw Dump” of the CD/DVD with all the error-correction & etc, therefore, you cannot compare the RAW SIZE of an image with the “Nominal Capacity” (aka Usable Data Size) of a cd.
Usable Data size is 2048/2352 of the Actual CD capacity. But you need the other 204/2352 for error corection.
hello. i have many bin cue files that i’d like to convert into vcds. i have done this before with vcd easy and its worked great. but now, when i go to burn the files the bin part of the program is acessible but the cue part is blocked out. Does anyone have any advice? i already removed the program and re installed it and that didnt work. thanks!
