    .Bin to bootable?

    I have a three CD video game that is in .bin files. To install it you use Deamon Tools to mount the .bin or .cue file and it runs just like a CD. I want to put this game onto CDs, so i am wondering if i can burn from these files so you just put the cd in like normal without having to mount anything?

    Im pretty sure, the bin I believe is basically a CD image. And the .cue fiile tells the CD burner program how to write the .bin file.

    So if you have any kind of CD burning software, try to open the .cue file in it and see if it will burn. I've done this before (With a completely legal copy of the game ofcourse )

    Since you apparently couldn't find anything using a really simple google search "extracting .bin"

    If you are using NERO, use the Burn Image to Disc.

    Select the .cue file, and it will burn the .bin file, its okay if the .bin file is larger than the cd.

    It will be bootable, you wont have to do any mounting.
