So I downloaded a set of 7 .rars, an audio language learning course originally on a CD...

The .rars extract fine, into a folder with a .bin and a .cue file. This is where my problems start. I know that this is the CD data and has to be burned as a disk image or something...

But I've looked for help on the net, and I understand generally what I have to do... but nothing seems to work!! It's very frustrating. I've done this sort of thing before, I feel like I know what I ought to be doing, but it's not working. I burn it to a CD, or make a virtual drive... am I missing a step or two here? No successes. The .bin file just wants to archive or extract itself. VLC says it's not a (s)VCD, etc. etc.

It's driving me nuts because it took a few days to download the whole thing, and I don't want to give up!

Is it possible the files are corrupted somehow?...

Can someone give me idiot-proof (I don't noodle around with disk utility that often) advice or steps here? Is there a program I can use that easier to use?

(BTW... not sure if this is the best place to post this!)

Does this help? Not sure if you have Toast...

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

I'm fairly certain most burning software can handle bin/cue files. Toast or Popcorn should handle it just fine on a Mac.

Thanks, I read both those helpful threads and ended up having to download Toast (my old version was only good on System 9, years ago!)... Anyways, it worked, but what a headache. Thanks again.
