✅ CDRWIN Binary Data File

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.

Windows cannot open this file:


To open this file, Windows needs to know what program you want to use to open it...

🔴 Can I change the extension of files?

Changing the filename extension of a file is not a good idea. When you change a file's extension, you change the way programs on your computer read the file. The problem is, changing the file extension does not change the file format.
