.bin image browser/extractor ?


My burner is broken =(

I was wondering if there is an image extractor available for linux. I'm trying to extract a cd image with a .bin extention. I've tried extracting the .bin file by making it executable but that didnt work. Cd images are treated differently I guess.
So what programs are out there? I spent a half an hour on google with no solid results.

there's no point in using a bin/cue for a data cd. In Linux we do it properly, and just dump the raw data, with no extra nothing:

dd if=/dev/cdrom of=image.iso

no farting about...!

Just mount the .bin file like you'd mount a cd in the cd drive - specify the file name as the device.
