    ::sigh:: multiple posts...

    Datamore says:
    A .bin file is a CD image. That means that a whole CD was copied into just one big file.
    A file type similar to .bin is .iso.
    These files are meant to be burned onto CDs in order to get an exact copy of the CD from where the .bin or the .iso file was created (some CDs have copy protections and the image burning won't be enough, so you'll be given a crack too, to run the game or application).
    You'll need the .cue files to burn the .bin files, but don't worry if you don't have them. You can also burn them without the cues.
    If you're going to burn a .bin file make sure both the .bin and the .cue are in the same directory.
    I recommend using Nero to burn the CD images.
    First of all, use CDmage and check the image file for errors.
    Then open up Nero.
    Go to 'File' > 'Burn Image...'
    Choose the .cue file that corresponds to the .bin file you want to burn, and click on 'Open'.
    Choose the burning options and burn the CD.

    If you don't have the .cue files, go to 'File' > 'Burn Image', choose the .bin file (not the .cue) and click on 'Open'.
    A window will popup saying 'Foreign image settings'
    Make sure the 'Type of Image' is 'Data Mode 1' and the 'Raw data' box is checked.
    Click on 'OK', choose the burning options and burn the CD.

    If you don't want to burn the files you can always use virtual drives to emulate a CD drive (Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120% are the best), mount the image files, install the game and run it. All of this from your hard drive.

    You can also try a program like WinISO or IsoBuster to extract the files from the .bin or. iso and run the files from your harddrive.
    Tips for finding verified movies:

    After about 10 megs or 10% of the total DL of the movie, use Avipreview and see if its your movie. Click the screen of Avipreview and an Index should pop up with some info. If the video or audio part has 0 (zero), then its a fake.

    After searching and thinking you have enough users, expand the list so you can see all the users for that file by clicking the "+" box to the left of the title and scroll down and check to see if the filenames match up to the movie your looking for and read the yellow description boxes that pop up too. Sometimes it will say if its a fake or not.

    Look at the length of the movie. A trick I learned awhile ago is that any movie with the length of 1:02:08 is a fake.

    Check the file size of the movie. Make sure its reasonable. Sometimes the movie is split into two or three parts for easier downloading.
    Check the hashes in the verifieds. That will usually say if a movie is out or not and will usually tell of its quality. Always check the verifieds first before looking for a movie which will save you some time.
    The idea of verified files is so that you know they exist. The Sig2Dat hashes are just a way to help get you started on the download. You still have to search for them. Kazaa constantly searches while you are downloading for more users. Searching manually just helps speed up that process.

    PL has nothing to do with speeds but priority on downloads(only on normal kazaa users)
    You can only download as fast as someone else can upload.
    You can only download if the other user has an open upload slot.
    Get rid of Ad-ware/Spyware and the like.
    Make sure your system is optimized for your connection (use a program like Dr. TCP or CableNut)
    If your downloading rare files, of course its going to be slow!
    More sources usually=better speed
    PATIENCE!
    Speeds vary on what you download sometimes...
    and...
    GOOD LUCK!
    Also try, http://www.speedguide.net or http://www.dslreports.com and test your speed there. If it matches your advertised speeds (what your ISP told you it was) then its not your fault. Also, try programs like Dr. TCP, CableNut or TCP/IP Optimizer...all found on either site.

    File:sig2dat.exe
    Length:54272 Bytes,53KB
    UUHash:=5J4NI7fleAT2wOootCOp3v8r//8=

    you should post the HTML hybrid way, that is much better and easier to download since it is also a quicklink that can be downloaded with a simple click.
    It will look like this:

    File:sig2dat.exe
    Length:54272 Bytes,53KB
    UUHash:=5J4NI7fleAT2wOootCOp3v8r//8=

    How to do it:

    1) Start Sig2Dat.
    2) Click on 'Signature Calculation'.
    3) Select the following hybrid style:



    4) Click on 'Select File(s) for Calculation'.
    5) Choose the verified files and click Open.
    6) The signature calculations will show up in the white window. Select the ones you want (hold the Shift or the Control key to choose more than one signature calculation at the same time).
    7) Click on 'Copy Selection to Clipboard'.
    8) Create a new topic in the verifieds section. Please use a subject that describes the contents of your post.
    9) Paste the signature calculation(s) into the message area of the topic you are about to post. You can press [Ctrl] + [v] or use the context menu (right-click on the message area and click 'Paste&#39.
    10) You should see something like this:

    Code:
    File:<a href="sig2dat:///|File:sig2dat.exe|Length:54272 Bytes,53KB|UUHash:=5J4NI7fleAT2wOootCOp3v8r//8=|">sig2dat.exe</a>
    Length:54272 Bytes,53KB
    UUHash:=5J4NI7fleAT2wOootCOp3v8r//8=
    11) It looks weird but don't worry. When you post it, it will show up correctly.
    12) You can add some more information about your post or just submit your topic.
    Also an alternative to select more files, drag and drop. Drag your files into the the Signature Calculation window and it calculates it for you.

    More sources usually = better speed
    Use tools that came with K++, such as AutoSearchMore, Speeedup, Kazap to find more sources.

    Go to the folder you have your file,
    then click on Tools at the top, go down to Folder Options, then click on View tab,
    scroll down and uncheck the box that says "hide file extensions for known file types",
    click OK, go back to your iso file, right click, rename, then delete the extension .exe replace with .iso.
    Now it should show up.&nbsp; B)

    1. When you post and find something like "page not found" or "cannot find", don&#39;t refresh or press the back button and repost just yet.
    2. Go back to the area you are about to post, now check to see if your topic or reply is already there. If it is there, then you don&#39;t have to do anything.
    3. If your topic or reply is not there, and you typed something really long, you could press back to the posting page with what you were about post. Copy that and paste it next time you post your topic or reply.
