Thread: Bin V Iso

  1. #1
    Someone fill me in on why people use bin instead of iso to transfer files. Isos are alot smaller, right? Are isos more prone to errors or what? I think I can shave close to 100 megs off of a 700-750 file saved bin format. _coded

    Nero vs. Roxio, depends on the user that creates it. I agree that iso's are smaller and no cue files are needed. The only problem with bin files are that if any modification were made to the cue sheet you will end up with a coaster. Always check the cue w/ notepad to make sure the file paths are the same.
    I have used both products and it just depends what you are use to or in most cases what the person started with.
    If you have a bin file and use roxio, the program 'bin to iso' is a must; its on kazaa;
    you dont need any cue sheet, the program will convert the bin to an iso image, then you can use roxio to burn the image.
    You can also use WinIso to convert bin to iso or vis versa.

    hope this helped,
