    Mounting an Bin/cue file ? (Not burning)
    Hey all, I'm going nuts trying to figure this out. I've google'd my butt off, and have come across all sorts of suggestions, techniques and have found nothing to help. I have some photoshop/Lightroom training videos, which are in the form of bin/cue files after they've been unzipped.

    I've tried opening with VLC directly (the bins), I've also tried Stuffit Expander Pro (13) but nothing ever happens when I drop the files into the app except that it starts zipping them.. OR.. I'll get a message saying that the bin files are not compressed at all in the first place.

    I've also tried using VLC to encode the bin files, which goes through the steps, but yields no results during playback. I don't want to burn these files to dvd, I just want to mount them, watch them and then toss them on to an Ext. HD for archiving when I'm done.

    I've also heard about using Toast to get it done, but do I really have to download yet another useless program that I'll never use for anything else but this one thing ? Why aren't there daemon tools to mount images, like there is for Windows ? I know.. this isn't Windows, but you get my point.

    I'd really appreciate some help with this stuff.

    P.S. To the mod who edited my text: That was wholly unnecessary. You could have just asked that I refrain from using that word, which technically... means donkey. (yes, I understand what context is).

    I think the open source burn can do it, using the copy function

    For some reason, the files I have seem to not be recognized as any particular file format, even though the extension says .bin. The cue which came with it is recognized as a bin/cue file, but I can not mount the .bin, nor is it able to be extracted any further than it is. I've never come across this before. And I don't think that any of the files I have are corrupted or incomplete, either.
