Question extracting .bin in fedora


Hey guys, I have a bit of a problem regarding Fedora Core 1 and extracting .bin files, the problem is, it won't. I've tried it with ISO Buster (using WINE) but that only gave me this error:
Cannot open AVI.
So I was wondering if anyone here could help me get .bin files extracted.

Is it a Goldenhawk-type CD image, with a .cue file and a .bin file containing all the data? If so you can load up the bin directly in mplayer if you want to view the movie.

If you want to mount this kind of CD image you need to use something like cdemu (which works great, by the way).

There is indeed a .cue file, but I just want to extract the .bin, not run the files.
The idea is to burn the contents of the .bin onto a cd, and I decided that it would be best to extract the .bin and then just dump the files on a cd, since X-CD-Roast wont burn from images on my hd. I figured I might have made a mistake in the configuration of X-CD-Roast, but when I ran through the configuration again, I found nothing of that sort.
So either I need to extract the files, or I'm pretty blind.
Thanks.

So mount the image using cdemu and just burn the files straight off of the mounted image, or is there some problem with that?

Hmmm, can't load the CD, this is what it says:

"cdemu written by Robert Penz <robert.penz@outertech.com> Version 0.5.0 alpha

usage: cdemu [OPTION]... [DRIVENUMBER] [CUEFILE]

-d, --device use the given device
-h, --help show this screen
-s, --status shows the status of all virtual drives
-u, --unload unloads the given device
-v, --verbose be verbose

cdemu creates its own devices upon installation.
These devices are usually located at /dev/cdemu/x
Where x represents a number from 0 to n. These numbers are the device
numbers expected by the cdemu command

examples: load cd: cdemu drivernumber cue-file | e.g. cdemu 0 foobar.cue
unload cd: cdemu -u drivernumber | e.g. cdemu -u 0
status: cdemu -s

*********************************************
for loading a CD I need a drive number or a --device and a cue-file"

So I do:
"[root@localhost cdemu-0.6-alpha]# ./cdemu --device 1 /home/thijs/Temp/Data.cue"
And then I get this:
"[Errno 2] No such file or directory: '1' "

Guess I'm doing something wrong, but I don't know what.
I hope you can help me.
Thanks.

Think I found what i did wrong (not sure though).
Tried to do the make thing, but just about every line contains an error.
Not sure what i did wrong.
"[root@localhost cdemu-0.6-alpha]# make cdemu /lib/modules/2.4.22-1.2149.nptl/build/include/"

I just encountered a .bin file recently. All I did was mount it as a loopback with

# mount -o loop thing.bin /mnt/hd

Then made an isofs out of that using

# mkisofs -o it.iso /mnt/hd/*

And then used cdrecord to burn that iso to a cd.

Andrew001, thanks for your help, but I want to extract the .bin, not mount it.
