Burning a .bin file without .toc file


Hello,

I copied images from several vcds in my hard drive using cdrdao. And it created a .bin and a matching .toc for all disks except one. I didn't notice that till after I returned the source disks. And now, I'm able to burn all the images except the one without the toc file.

Is there any way to burn a .bin file without the corresponding .toc file? Or is there any way I can generate a .toc file from the .bin file that I have?

Thanks in advance,
VJ

Have a look in the other .toc files. Iirc, these usually contain only one name, that of the bin file. It certainly is a silly format, whose main advantage for its 'inventor' was that it was incompatible with competing software.

Thank you. I looked at the other .toc files and find a few sets of entries in each file (one for each track). And the information changes with each file - possibly due to differing track lengths.

I suppose I can make a new .toc file by trial and error (trying various track lengths till I get the right one). But is there an easier way out?

Aha you are not copying data discs but music. No, this was the only method _I_ know, but google might know more.

Actually I was copying from VCDs. And for once, google didn't help much :-(.

FYI, what I'm trying to do is to encode the movie from VCDs (which I dumped in bin/toc files using cdrdao) to divx. Unfortunately, mplayer/mencoder doesn't handle tracks in a bin file, so I'm forced to burn those bin files to a CD again, and encode them using mencoder. I've managed this for all the disks except this one for which the toc file is missing.

Messy, I know... I only wish I'd retained those original source disks. Thank you, all the same.
