What Do You Do With BIN and CUE Files?


First of all, exactly what are .BIN and .CUE files?  Well, a .BIN file is similar to that of an .ISO file, in that it is an image of a CD etc. and the .CUE file is a metadata file that defines how it is burnt to disk - as simple as that!

Unlike ISO files though, you can't burn them to a disc natively in Windows so you'll need to download and install a utility to do so - I'm going to use ImgBurn as it's a great utility and it's free!

ImgBurn can downloaded from the official website www.imgburn.com or via www.ninite.com

Burning a disc using ImgBurn couldn't be easier, simply insert a blank disk, open up the utility and Click on Write Image file to disc


Then click on Browse for a file


(The file you are looking for is the .CUE file)


Once you have Opened the .cue file all you then need to do is click on the Write button:



DONE!
