BIN files are typically a bunch of files compiled into a single one that's ready to be written by a CD burner. with Nero for example, you would click "burn image," load the BIN, burn it, and the resulting CD would contain the files that the BIN contained (instead of the BIN in its original form).
you can browse and extract things from BINs with a program like ISOBuster or Daemon Tools. ISOBuster simply lets you browse the BIN and extract files from it, as if it's like a ZIP file. Daemon Tools "mounts" the BIN and then Windows will treat it like an actual CD-Rom.
if a movie comes in BIN form, then it's prolly an "image" of a full VCD (with the folders and everything).
you can actully preview them with video lan even if their unfinished

/me recommends Alcohol 120% for all your burning/virtual drive needs.
@ Adster 120% VOL.
The easiest way is just to burn it but if u just want to install then get WinIso or IsoBuster and just open it up and extract whatever it is.
Nah, never, Alchola 120% (hehe Adster) and then Mount it on a virtual drive (Fake Driver) then if it works, or you liked it, Burn it. If you don't like it, then waste of a cd.
That's what I told him.
