I downloaded something with a .bin in it, and I'm wondering, what can I use to open it?

Do I need to download something like WinRAR?

WinRAR should be able to open it.

I downloaded WinRAR, but it doesn't open it.

Anyone else have any other ideas?

You need a .cue file as well to be able to burn it to disk.

I have that too. So, what is my process to open this file(s)?

You need a burning program, such as Nero. Use the .cue file, it should let you set up the .bin file to be burned to disk.

Okay, so I burned the files onto the disk, what do I do now? Can you give me a site that gives me a step by step? Cuz I really have no idea what to do.

You sure winRAR couldn't open the bin file? I know I've looked at bin files with winRAR.

Here's what you do.

Open Nero Start Smart
Goto Copy and Back up tab
Click on Burn image to disc
Make it so you can select all files
Double click on your .cue file (I'd make sure the bin and cue are in the same folder)
Then Proceed to burn.


Like Sith said.... if you did it right... you CD should be whatever program you downloaded :p

Well, Thing is, I don't have nero.

I have "Easy CD Creator 5". So, I dunno what I'd do there. :(

Sorry, I'm really dumb when it comes to burning stuff I've never burned before. =/

Well, try looking for a "Burn image to disc" option. If not, you can get the trial here (http://www.nero.com/us/neroue-prog.php).

Well, when I do that, a thing comes up that only lets me select from .cif files and .iso files.

I guess I'll jsut have to get Nero.

There is no "All Files" option.

Easy CD Creator sucks.

You beat me to it LightNinja :p >> ISO Buster (http://www.smart-projects.net/isobuster/) <<
It opens bin files as if they were zips or rars so you can drag individual files out :) Very handy!

Or you could just mount the image on a virtual drive using a program such as Daemon Tools. Just Google it, the program is free.
