Today i extracted one archive which contained .bin and .cue files and i was unable to play them with VLC Media Player, after doing google found it is archive similar to .iso. I convert it to ISO using bchunk utility and mount it as loop back device and .
bchunk – Free utility use to convert .bin, .cue files to .iso
1. Install bchunk
On ubuntu/backtrack Linux;
aptitude install bchunk
On RHEL/CentOS Linux;
yum install bchunk
2. Convert .bin .cue to iso using bchunk
bchunk iron-lycp5etg.bin iron-lycp5etg.cue iron-lycp5etg.iso
Note : .bin file will always have .cue file in same directory plus iron-lycp5etg is a sample file.
Reading the CUE file: Track 1: MODE1/2352 01 00:00:00 Writing tracks: 1: iron-lycp5etg01.iso 472/472 MB [********************] 100
3. Mount iron-lycp5etg01.iso
mount -o loop iron-lycp5etg01.iso /mnt/iso
Now you can find all video files under
If you have any question or suggestion, feel free to comment.
