.bin - CDRWIN Binary Data File

The BIN disk image files are related to CDRWIN. BIN file is a CDRWIN Binary Data File. The .cue / .bin format developed by Jeff Arnold for CDRWIN can encode CD Image formats in either 2048 or 2324 bytes per sector. The BIN file is a binary copy of an entire CD/DVD disc. The BIN file contains all the data stored on the original disc, not only its files and folders but also its system-specific information such as, boot loaders, volume attributes and any other data. BIN files are usually bigger than .iso files because, in contrast to .iso files, they are not a bit for bit copy of the entire CD/DVD. The CDRWIN seems to be no longer supported.

Can't open a .bin file?

When you double-click a file to open it, Windows examines the filename extension. If Windows recognizes the filename extension, it opens the file in the program that is associated with that filename extension. When Windows does not recognize a filename extension, you receive the following message:

Windows can't open this file:

example.bin

To open this file, Windows needs to know what program you want to use to open it. Windows can go online to look it up automatically, or you can manually select one from a list of programs that are installed on your computer.

To avoid this error, you need to set the file association correctly.
