I wasn't sure which forum to put this in so apologies to moderators and feel free to move it if it's in the wrong one.

I'm trying to work out what to do with a .CUE file I have. Ideally I would like to just extract the file and be able to use the files it contains on the computer, but if I have to burn it then fair enough - only I can't work out how to do that either. I have Toast, which I have tried and it doesn't seem to work, I've also tried Disc Utility as I thought perhaps it would be possible with that. I googled it and was unable to find much information on it other than one discussion on another forum in which someone said that the application 'Disco' would be able to burn .CUE files. Downloaded this and it didn't work either.

Any help much appreciated! Thanks.

A cue file does not have the data you're looking for. It's the .BIN file that you need. The CUE file is sorta like a description of the BIN. You normally need both to burn a disc or otherwise use the data (there are exceptions, like VLC media player).

Toast opens Bin/CUE files, though yes, both have to be present.
