    bin & cue seems to be most popular, mainly for the reason that you can break the 700MB barrier with little problem, as they are
    measured by time length, much the same way audio cd sizes are measured.

    for creating & burning bins, isos, or any disc image, I prefer Alcohol 120%.
    handles them all quite well, and it can mount the image
    to a virtual drive, if you'd like to test it before you burn it, or if you can't find a 'no-cd' crack, or if you just like it that way.

    I&#39;ll second that. They&#39;re smaller and they don&#39;t require a cue sheet to burn.

    i prefer to use nero&#39;s .nrg to make image files of cd&#39;s:



    i am currently downloading a copy of a unattended win xp pro with sp1 installation and i will convert that into a .nrg nero image aswell. they work great because with image drive enabled in nero it works as a virual drive.

    i like Alcohol&#39;s .mds because it can copy protections - useful for me because i prefer to run images from my hard-drive than use my original CDs
