How Do I Use or Open Bin, Cue, or ISO Files?

People frequently get confused regarding these file types. Here’s how to use these files. Updated.

    *.bin
    *.cue
    *.iso

    These file extensions are commonly used to show that a file is an image of a CD or DVD.

    The most simple way to access these files is to use your CD or DVD Burner to burn them to a disk. Nero is a common program that is used to burn bin/cue files to hard media.

    One really nice thing to do is to treat these files as a virtual CD or DVD without ever burning them. Daemon Tools is one program that is often used to do this. Microsoft now has a free program that does this as well.

    The other place that *.bin files are frequently used are in emulation software. Gaming roms are often stored in compressed files full of bin files. If you have a zip file full of *.bin files, try Mame or some similar emulator.

Updated for some minor edits and spelling changes.
