Burning .cue (bin) files in Linux?


Hi everyone. I am new here and have been using Mandrake 9 Linux for about 3 months now. However, I dual-boot with Windows XP. But, I recently downloaded some .bin image files and the .cue files that go along with them. I always used X-CD-Roast for burning .iso image files and other sorts of CDs, but I have realized that X-CD-Roast will not work with burning .bin and .cue files.

Someone I know recommended that I use CDRDAO to burn them, but he did not know the specific commands that I am supposed to use to burn them. Could someone walk me through this or give me an alternative program that will burn my .cue images?

Thanks a lot for any help.

Here's the command line that I use:

cdrdao write --device 0,0,0 --speed 12 filename.cue

write = command

--device = option for your device (use cdrecord --scanbus to get it)
--speed = option for the speed that your device (and empty CDs) support

Thanks for the help, but I find that I can only burn cds with this command if I execute it as root. Is there any way that it can be done as a normal user?

There's a great little free program called bchunk that converts .bin and .cue files to .iso's...

It's just a one step process and seems to work very well.

Well, to be honest I don't know for sure since I've never tried to run it as a normal user. But you can always try to Set User ID by running the command:

chmod u+s /full_path_to_cdrdao

and see if that works.

But be aware that this is a security risk!

On the other hand, if you are the only one who is going to burn CDs on your computer you can just 'su' to root and burn.

I use fireburner, and it works like a charm.

The only thing is its not free.
