Bin and Cue Files

I have a bin file that came with a cue file. To use this, do I simply burn both on to a CD? I'd be using Roxio CD Creator 5.5.

Thanks.

The web site with said file should have told you that. To doublecheck, supply a link to said file.

Not exactly. bin/cue files are CD images. They need to be burned in a specific way to work.

However, since most of the legitimate CD image downloads I can think of come in standard ISO format, I'm going on the assumption this is something along the lines of a pirated game, possibly a movie. In which case, I don't care if you pirate it so much, but the "price" is that you figure out how to make it work on your own. If my assumption is wrong, tell me what the image is for, and if it sounds legit I'll help more.

Since you expressed such curiosity, the file was a back up of several large CAD files for a controls automation system.

But not to worry as I also sorted the problem out on my own and was able to restore the files.

Cue and bin files were made common by cdrwin some time ago. It is a program for burning to cd, that used bin files for image files and the cue file to instruct the computer how to burn to cd. There are several type of bin files including for Apple computers but the cue bin you write about are more than likely made by cdrwin or other cd burning software that came after.
