Cue + Bin are CD Image formats

Either:

1) Get a free program called Daemontools and mount the file in a virtual drive
2) Use your CD burning software (Nero etc) to write the BIN (it will have Burn from Image option) and watch it from the CD.

you mean a DVD?

or you really mean a CD? :p

i dont know why ur on my ignore list :scratch: i just took u out from there :lol:

anyway those are images like Pengwin said and to burn then u can use Nero or Alcohol 120% when u chose to burn get the cue not the bin (once u get the cue he will burn the bin , bin is not recognised thats why u need cue) if u just want to open it get WinIso or MagicISO chose the file open it and extract hope it works ;)

You can actually play the .bin in VLC with no worries. I'm not sure if you even need the .cue (theoretically it contains "instructions for burning" but as the .bin is just a video file in some kind of wrapper, the .cue can be deleted if you don't intend to mount or burn).

Its a video player that plays files of all extensions without worrying about codecs. If you just want to watch the movie then get this software its :worship:
