    Hey all... Right, got a .bin/.cue combo that I need converting into some kinda mac friendly thing to burn onto a dvd..

    This combination should yield a Video.

    I'm not willing to pay for Toast, I'd rather do it through freeware/limited use shareware/whatever's provided in OS X.

    Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

    You're best bet is to pay for a program. I was trying to do this with several different files, trial versions and demos just can't cut it. I ended up with PowerISO and MagicISO and TransMac.

    DON'T PAY for any software. I just found a shareware program last night for doing pretty much the same thing. I'm not at home right now, so I'll have to get back to you on the name/link of the program.

    But what you can do/what I did is drag/drop a bin file (or most video formats, for that matter) and then select what type of format you want it converted to - anything from xvid avi to mpeg-4 and more. It's got a lot of extra features built into it too.

    It is shareware, but as far as I can tell, the only thing is that every time you start the program, you just have to see a screen saying it's shareware - I don't think you're limited on the program's functionality.

    So yeah, later tonight (for me at least, in the US) I'll post the site

    *Edit*
    As soon as I posted, I remembered the program's name. It's called ffmpegX - click! Hopefully this does what you need it to do.

    uh, VLC should do this too, it will open the bin file directly and play the movie. you should be able to do a file->save as

    Have you tried simply renaming the .bin file to .iso?

    Works for me.

    Occam's razor?

    What a stitch! After all my researching, tabs and tabs of pages and pages full of theories, speculation, and elaborate directions requiring to me to attain this fancy program or that one--renaming the file to .iso worked for me.

    You're a genius. Thank you.

    This may come in awfully late, but hey... :p

    The difference between a bin/cue image and an ISO image is that the former contains additional raw data (for error correction etc.) for each sector. The typical bin/cue sector will contain 2372 bytes (if I recall correctly), while the ISO sector will contain 2048 bytes.

    Often you see bin/cue (or otherwise labeled) images with a sector size of 2048. Those you can simply rename to .iso as they are in fact ISO images.

    Usually these days the only vital information in the cue sheet (the .cue file) will be the sector size. Just open the file in a text editor and have a look.
