    Can you extract an ISO file with zip utilities like Winrar? I've ran across certain files that I can't open. Is there a better method to extract this sort of file?

    ISO is a CD image file.
    What you need is known as ISOBuster !
    What other type of file do you want to extract?

    I D-loaded the program you suggested. Its a 720 mb file that I want to open and shows up on ISO buster as 618mb. I tried extracting it with ISO Buster but I'm not sure what to do. On defualt the program extracted it as a bin file. I guess what I'm tring to say is that I expected to see a bunch of files like you would see on a program. If this file that I have is a good ISO file, how do I burn it to a cd as a working program? This ISO is suppose to be a working program incase your wondering.

    I have CloneCD and Nero burning rom for software.

    Do you got a bin and cue file to work with?
    If that's the case then burn it with Nero, close the wizard **** and also close the "New Compilation" window that let's you choose which type of disc to burn.

    Then just choose "burn image" from the file menu.
    Then you just specify where you have the cue file and then just burn..

    However, you don't need a cue file to burn a bin/cue image.
    Many people think so but it's not true.

    You can use a very good program called "Daemon tool" to mount the bin image. This program let you use the image as a real cd without burning it first. Download and install this software, then mount your Bin file and then open "my computer" and there you'll se the disc. This way you could decide whether the software is worthy of a cd. ;)

    well to burn an ISO on a CD...just start your Nero Burning ROM and click on "Open an existing compilation".
    It will help you burn this ISO on a CD.
    Atleast thats one way I know to burn my ISO's with Nero...anyother way to do...I don't know...:?:

    About ISOBuster...I have never used it but heard that its best when comes to getting stuff from CD's or ISO's for that matter.
    May be the file you are trying to access is renamed as .bin, try renaming it to .exe or whatever it is and then start it.
    It might work...you never know...:?:

    Your "Bin" file is a cd image, it will NOT work to rename it to something else.

    You have to burn it to a cd or use a software like daemon tool.

    Get this great tool:

    I get an unexpected format pop-up when I try to open it with Nero. The file is and was originally an exe. file pictured as a DOS thumbnail and I did extract it as a raw bin file with ISObuster but neither format works with asklepios's methed using Nero to burn it to a CD.
    I have never used daemon tool and I'm not sure how to mount with it either. Some insight would help.
    It is possible that the file I have is bad becuse it seems like I have been able to open certain ISO files with Winrar in the past and unzip them to a folder in my harddrive. Is that possible? I probably don't know what I'm talking about and maybe those files really were not an ISO to begin with.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I'm editing this post after I tried mounting the file with Daemon tool and it gives me a pop-up staing that this file cannot be mounted. I'm starting to think I have a bad file that cannot be used.

    Ok, install Daemon tool and run it, you should now se the icon in your system tray. Right click it and under the "virtual cd-dvd-rom"
    And there you will find "mount image" option.

    Click it and chose to see all filetypes or else you will not be able to se the bin file on your computer. (se image below)

    Just specify where you have the bin filem click on it and then ok,
    you have now mounted your Bin image.

    You said that the original format was "exe"..:?: :wow:
    It sounds like you are dealing with some other type of file than a real BIN but at least try this software and see if it works.

    I use it everyday and if the imagefile is ok then it ALWAYS work.

    Bin files are a real cd image format.. (best there is in my opinion)

    Good luck..

    I tried that but like I metioned before Daemon tool says that the file cannot be mounted. I think the file is messed up. I'ts CoreLDraw graphics Suite 11, suppose to be 3 CDS in one ISO file. With a 700+ MB file I had high hopes that it would work.
