Thread: Need Help Setting Up Bin And Cue Files

  1. #1
    Could somebody please give me a step by step process in playing a game that includes a .bin and .cue file? I have downloaded simcity 4, mafia, and battlefield 1942. I am using alcohol 120%. I try mounting the cue file first but alcohol 120% will not recognize it as a mountable file but when I mount the .bin file it goes straight to the setup process and while its installing it either freezes or it tells me it could not find the right component and shuts down. It does that for mafia and battlfield 1942. It installed everything for sim city 4 but when i try to play it it does nothing.



    SOMEBODY HELLLLP MEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!

    Do a search or :rtfm: . This has been addressed too many times to count.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t

    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.
