I did a bit of research, and came across bchunk. That created 2 iso files, one which was 1.1MB and one that was 640MB. I tried mounting the bigger one with the same command as above (with .iso instead) and I get the same message.
sudo mount -o loop -t iso9660 name.bin /mnt/cdrom
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/loop0,
or too many mounted file systems
(could this be the IDE device where you in fact use
ide-scsi so that sr0 or sda or so is needed?)
.cue files are text files which define what are the contents of the binary .bin file.
if the .bin file you have is mode1/2048 then it is a regular "iso" file (or udf maybe) and you can mount it like usually.
if the .bin file is mode1/2352 (raw) which is the usual then you cannot mount it.
You can use bchunk as you said to make it into an iso, which should have worked.
You can use cdemu patch too from www.cdemu.org.
It is a kernel patch which emulates a cd device.
It produces a module so you don't need to recompile your kernel to use it.
Both bchunk and cdemu have worked perfectly for me.
You say bchunk didn't work, but even if it did, i would still recommend cdemu.
Try it and logically it will work perfectly.
