I've searched the net and I've come to the loose conclusion that .bin files are normally asssoicated with the Linux OS. So that rules out me opening them, since I run Win98SE and Win2K. I've tried opening them with WinRAR and WinZip, but no luck. Any help? openingbinfiles3ro.png

Lol no you need to get Daemon Tools and open the cue file with it then that will make a extra drive on ur pc with the files contained in the bin file on. So 1. download Daemon Tools - http://www.daemon-tools.cc/dtcc/portal/portal.php 2. Install It 3. Right click it from your taskbar (bottom right of screen) should be a red and silver image with a lighning bolt on. 4. Open the cue file with it. 5. Go to 'My Computer' 6. Open new drive 7. Move files to where ever you want 8. Have Fun

Also i would like to say to the stubborn mods who are moaning at him for downloading something illegal. 1. It could be a demo 2. Dont tell me you have not downloaded anything illegaly before - a song, movie, software etc

.bin files are binary, which is near impossible to read anyway. Unless specific instructions tell you to open this file, I reckon it's only part of a program - .bin files aren't made to be easily read by humans, but to be read by computers.

Whatever it is, try emailing the support people for the software.

Don't correct people who're correct; what Reven said was accurate. All Daemon Tools does is take the file and spit out whatever it happens to be.

Binary files show up in Windows, also, often under the guise of executables; they're nothing more than compiled source files. That does bring up another point, however: there is no reason for the typical end-user to need to open .bin files; if you do have such a need, then you shouldn't have to ask.

As I said the last time I answered this question, Binary files could be anything. True, they can be used to archive files; this is where Daemon Tools comes in.

However, they could just as easily be source code, sound data, drivers - anything and everything. .bin is a universal extension.
