    Default Image Burning

    Ok, I just downloaded some files for a program that I want to use, and it says that I need to "either burn/mount image" in order to proceed to installation. What does this mean, and more improtantly, how do I do it?

    I have a CD burner.

    No. They are .bin, .cue, and .nfo. I think this is an image of another disc, but when I burned it, nothing happened.

    The nfo file should tell you something about what you need to do. You might be able to view it by opening it in MSWord using unicode or wahtever. There are also free nfo viewers available. Try Googling.
    THe BIN files might be opened by any number of programs but I'll bet the nfo tells you which.

    Nero can open these files. The .bin can also be converted to ISO.

    You can burn them with programs like Nero, CDR-Win, CloneCD, etc.. Or you can mount it with something like Alcohol 120%, Daemon Tools... etc.

    As has already been stated Nero (as well as most good burning programs) will work for this type of file. You will not be able to simply burn the files as data though. What you are looking at is, indeed, a disk image and it must be burned as such. You will need to set your burning program to burn a disk image and point it toward the .cue file. It should then create a complete copy of the original disk as long as the bin and cue files are in the same folder.

    It is my understanding that the .cue file tells the burning program how to recreate the original disk that the .bin file contains. The .nfo file is usually additional information that you may or may not need in order to install the program and is easily opened with notepad. Do not burn the .nfo file to the image disk.
