looking for a good bin to iso converter...
« on: October 22, 2006, 10:03:31 am »

as the subject implies i'm looking for a good bin to iso converter, for some reason i have ripped a 3DO cd (need for speed) into bin/cue format and have lost the cd and i can't find any bin to iso converters that even work with the image.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I don't know of any. As a last-minute option you could always burn and re-rip as ISO, but I'm sure you could find some utility to do the job for you.

Doing a quick Google search produces several utilities that seem relevant. Have you tried any of these?

Yep.

If you need to slow down the burn process, I'd say there's something weird with your media, burner and/or reader. I have heard reports of slowly burned CD-Rs working better with devices that don't really support CD-R, though, but I've never run into this in practice.

Legacy  CD players can only read CD-Rs written at half the speed of their read.   You should not have to worry about this unless your CD drive predates 1998.

.bin files can actually contain one of several different formats of rips. One of these types (MODE1/2048) is actually equivalent to iso. If your .cue file (which is human-readable) specifies that that's the format, you don't need to do any conversion at all. You can just rename the .bin file to .iso and it should work.

I have run into cases where CDs failed to write properly at higher speeds. Granted, that was about six years ago. On a modern machine you can usually go full-speed.
