How to make Bin/Cue, and ISO

For ISO also read the BIN/CUE then see ISO. The ISO is like BIN, but ISO does not use CUE, you can use Nero,alcohol120% to burn it or emulate with alcohol or daemon tools.

The .bin file is the single file containing the contents of the CD,DVD which you downloaded. You will also have a .cue file (much smaller size) which goes with the large .bin file. Together, they create the complete "image" of the CD,DVD you chose to download. The purpose of the .cue file is to tell your burning software (for eg, Nero) exactly how to record the data present in the .bin file. Once you have the .bin file and the .cue file for each disc, you may burn the file onto a blank CD-R or DVD. We suggest using Nero or Alcohol 120%.

Along with the large capacity hard disk popularity, people were already used to coping compact discs to CD/DVD image files, generally used is the famous ISO 9660 international standards format, therefore CD/DVD image files are called ISO files. Because the ISO file retained complete data information of the compact disc (including compact disc boot information), you were allowed the convenience to use commonly used CD/DVD burning software (for example Nero-Burning ROM ) to record the disc with your CD-R/RW or DVD-R/RW over and over forever, it can also be used directly through Virtual CD/DVD-ROM drive software (for example Daemon-Tools ) .

How to burn?
Burn them onto a blank CD using the info from .cue
Insert the disc into your CD drive and install the program or game.

Note about burning:
Do not burn it as data cd. Your program should have a wizard for burning images and there you will select the .Cue and it'll give the instructions about how to burn the .Bin. In Alcohol 120% is very easy to do that.
Also .Cue and .Bin should be in the same folder if not it don't work.


Unless otherwise stated, .bin files burn perfectly fine on a normal 700MB CD even though they may seem too big, just ignore the .bin file size. Once you start burning with either Nero or Alcohol, it will tell you the actual size of the .bin file, which will always end up well under 700MB so you have no worries.

I don't have a cd or I don't want to waste one

Then you may do what?s called ?emulating? an ISO or .Bin. This entails making your computer believe it has a new cd-rom drive and that you just inserted the disc into it corresponding to what CD image you load. This can most easily be accomplished with either of two programs: Alcohol 120% or Daemon Tools. Selecting to ?Mount? a disc image in either of the two programs will result in your computer thinking you?ve inserted the disc and you can install or play from there, straight off your hard drive without ever having needed to burn a disc.

How in daemon tools

Right-click on the DAEMON Tools tray-icon
Select Virtual CD/DVD-ROM
Select Device [X]

Click Mount
Browse and select the image you wish to mount
Click OK or double-click on the file to mount.

I don't have a CUE.. What should I do?

Answer: You can create a .cue, here are the steps..

1) Open notepad and put this in it :

FILE "image-name.BIN" BINARY
TRACK 1 MODE2/2352
INDEX 1 00:00:00

2) Change where says "image-name.Bin" to the exact name of your .bin.
Then go to save as and put there save it as "all the files"and put the exacly name of the .BIN just without .BIN and of extension put .CUE and you'll have the .BIN.

1)You cannot use Windows XP alone to burn an ISO image. You must have a 3rd-party CD burning software package such as those listed above.
2)Always use a new blank disc.
3)If you are burning a CD, you should close all other programs while the CD is burning, and let the program run without interruption.
4)When downloading the ISO image file, save it to a folder that is easy to find such as "My Documents";
5)If your CD-ROM burning software is other than those listed, open the program and search "Help" for instructions regarding creating a disc from an ISO file.

1) Open CloneCD
2) Click the second button (Write From Image File)
3) Click 'Browse' and load the .CCD file, then 'Next'
4) The next screen is tricky. Depending upon the icon you choose, CloneCD activates some write option that, on some CDs, may help copying the protection scheme. Try choosing among the default settings or look on the net for the proper settings if you know you're dealing with a protected CD (laserlock, safedisc etc.)
5) OK will activate burning.

BURNING GUIDE WITH ALCOHOL 120% (nearly all image types)

3) push 'Browse' then load the proper file(.CUE, .CCD, .ISO) file.
4) Now you should see the info of the loaded image. Push 'next'.
5) On the next screen check that your recorder is shown. Look at the 'Datatype' drop-down menu:
6) Change the 'Datatype' drop-down menu according to the protectionyou detected on the original CD (or image). In this example we set 'Playstation' since the CD is a PSX CD. You'll notice that this setting automatically changes Write Method from DAO/SAO to RAW DAO and deselects 'rectify Sub-Channel Data'. Different Datatypes will activate different settings.
6) The write speed is set accordingly to your system resources. Just avoid burning at high speed for PSX CDs (since PSX CD-ROM sucks). Click 'Start' to start burning.
7) On the next screen you are able to keep track of the burning process. Avoid using too many system resources during the burning process.
Cool A popup will inform you at the ending of the burning. The Backup CD has been completed!

3) Click the first button 'Record Disc'
4) Click 'Load Cuesheet' button and load the proper .CUE file. Please note that if you receive errors maybe the image path written on the .CUE might be uncorrect. In this case open the .CUE file with Notepad and check that on the 1st row (FILE "...." BINARY) the correct path of the image (the large file that came with the .CUE) is written. Otherwise, correct it.
5) If you can, click on the 'RAW Mode' button. This is not always necessary, except when the CD is protected. All other options are left blank.
