Playing .bin Formats

Discussion in 'Amateur Video Production' started by Tavish Muldoon, Sep 17, 2003.

  1. Hello,

    I created a .bin file using VCDEasy.

    1) Can I drop and drag this file onto a cd burner, and play it on a
    dvd/VCD player
    or does the acutally CD have to formatted as as VCD?

    2) Can I play a .bin file from my computer via some software to see
    the quality of the .bin file before I burn it? If this software
    exists - where is it, and what would be the name?

    Drag and drop usually implies packet writing, which will not create a
    readable VCD. Use your CD burning software to write the image. i.e.,
    you want to use the BIN/CUE to create a disc, rather than creating a
    disc that has a BIN and a CUE file on it.

    Yeah, there are some programs which can emulate a CD from an image. I'm
    sure you can google something. Or just use a RW disc.

    I use Alcohol 120% for emulation but there are many programs out
    there. Look in alt.binaries.multimedia.utilities.

    You can use Daemon Tools to create virtual disk drives that you can "mount"
    the cue file and then play the video, or use "disk copy" in any burning
    program to make a copy of the bin/cue file. The burning software does not
    care that it is a video file.

    Daemon tools if free--
