    Hello every one

    There's is my problem:

    I have a game that has 3 cds to install. I made image files (.bin) and I want to join them to make only ONE image files so i can burn it on a DVD and then just put the dvd on the dvd reader and then let it install.

    How can I make ONE image file from 3 cd image files???

    thanks a lot!!!

    I know you can use DOS to merge ISO's together. I wonder if it can do BIN's? Check this out, it'll tell you how to do it.

    [bold]click on the windows start button and click run
    type cmd and hit enter

    The MS-DOS screen should appear

    type cd c:\

    you can copy and paste it if you like

    that should bring you to

    C:\>

    at this point either type or copy and paste

    copy /b shell.000 + shell.001 + shell.002 shell.iso

    please note thAt you can only paste this into MS-DOS if you named your files are shell 000 shell 001 etc.
    if they are named something else type that in place of shell.

    hit enter

    at this point you should see

    shell.000

    after a few minutes

    shell.000
    shell.001

    then after a few more

    shell.000
    shell.001
    shell.002

    then it will say after completion

    1 file copied [/bold]
    Instead of shell.xxx just use whatever name is attached to your files you want to merge. All the original files must be located directly on the C directory (My computer/C - should be right there, not in any folders).

    That's strange. When you say it's empty, do you mean that when you try to browse it you get nothing or do you mean that when you look at the bottom it is unburned?

    As far as burning it, not too sure. How did you try to burn it? As a data file?

    I browse the DVD in the same drive as when i burned the DVD. I don't use any media player to open the DVD.
    I just right click and then open it.

    Thanks a lot for replying!!!!!

    and you get nothing? I'd try different media first. I had that problem with khpermedia discs. Don't even try to use them.
