The .bin file is a CD image, the .cue file is (I believe) the file Nero uses as a Table of Contents to burn the CD.
'cdrdao' can use these files and burn the CD properly.


j.vilon 11-17-2004 09:06 PM

but i cant covert this file to these files properly??
any program on linux cant do that?

You can use cdrdao on Linux to burn the image (the .bin file) to CD.

Something like 'cdrdao write -n --device /dev/hdc rld-nu2a.cue' would burn the disk. (where /dev/hdc is your cd burner)

You might be able to mount the .img file directly with something like 'mount -o loop -t iso9660 rld-nu2a.bin /mnt/loop' (assuming you have an empty directory at /mnt/loop). I'm not sure though.


j.vilon 11-17-2004 11:04 PM

yes but dont work.. :S

look :
cdrdao write -n --device /dev/hdd /cdrom/Need.For.Speed.Underground.2.Update.1.1.INCL-RELOADED/CD1/rld-nu2a.cue
Cdrdao version 1.1.9 - (C) Andreas Mueller <>
SCSI interface library - (C) Joerg Schilling
Paranoia DAE library - (C) Monty

Check for current driver tables.

Using libscg version 'schily-0.8'

/dev/hdd: PLEXTOR CD-R PX-W4824A Rev: 1.03
Using driver: Generic SCSI-3/MMC - Version 2.0 (options 0x0000)

and dont work..

any program copy them files on my /cdrom to hard disk but not on " .cue " or " .bin " but yes on " files" too exectuted..
u understand?
sorry my english :|

All I can suggest is that you get a Windows machine with cdrwin on it, and burn the CD there - I don't know of any program which can access the files inside .bin images.


j.vilon 11-17-2004 11:47 PM

bahh yes.. but this " way " i know.. but, i cant understand it's the last thing to do.. :S
but ok :)
tks for help

u could use a program like bin2iso, convert it to iso and mount.

btw: anyone got nfs-u2 working?

j.vilon 11-18-2004 01:57 PM

it's work's? but where i can convert my bin and cue to iso?
and next where i can mount them .iso??
tks :)

ive been fighting with this same issue and i have come to the conclusion that because the .bin and .cue files are exclusive to nero (as far as i can tell) you are FUBAR for getting them to work in linux. i just ended up useing daemon tools to mount the .bin and then smbmount to get access to it from my *nix box.

what i will end up doing is burning a CD, then using *nix to make either a .img or .iso that i can copy to the HD and thus mount it properly without the hassles of the .bin/cue BS from M$.

check out that thread for more details on what has been sujested for the file extentions you are looking at.

ahh ok, but i downloaded the file bin2iso
but i cant install i dont know why :|

Makefile bin2iso.c

i have only them files.. 2.. i cant configure.. it's so confuse.. i dont understand

KoKi 11-18-2004 07:56 PM

from bin2iso.c:


// bin2iso
// Converts BIN/CUE format cd images (used by DAO/CDRWIN)
// to the more-universal .ISO format (raw iso image)

// Quickly thrown together, only know to work on single-track .BIN files
// Need to do some more research, then it should be easy to support
// multiple tracks as well as .WAV files.

// use "gcc -o bin2iso bin2iso.c -O3" to compile, pretty standard :)

Lleb_KCir 11-18-2004 10:19 PM

that is far from standard to a newbie like the OP or me.

There's a makefile there - just type 'make' while you're in the directory. That should give you the executable.
