    I downloaded a movie form a torrent site. It came up as two cds full of .rar files. I extracted one and got a bin file and a cue file. I read your guide on how to burn bin/cue images using nero but will this work for a movie? I usually use VSO DIVX converter and then copytodvd to make my dvd's. Im totally lost to know what to do with this bin/cue thing. can you direct me to a step by step guide of some sort . Thanks

    This Bin/Cue file is Most likely a VCD or SVCD Movie in which case you do not need to encode them at all to put them on to DVD because the VCD Format is DVD Compliant and the SVCD Format can be authored to DVD as a Non-Standard DVD that will Play in most all DVD Players but you will have to author the Files to DVD useing "DVDLab Pro" cuz most DVD authoring programs do not support authoring VCD and SVCD files to DVD.....

    I believe there is a Guide in the Tutorials section of this Site on how to author VCD and SVCD Bin File to DVD useing DVDLab ....It might be a Little Complicated if you have only used Half assed programs Like DivXtoDVD to author files to DVD.....

    Cheers

    Ok , sorry for my ignorance but why is the vso converter half assed? Can you please suggest a better one. And im still confused about these bin and cue files. Are you saying dvd lab will convert then to dvd? Is there a step by step for my half assed brain?

    Well VSO DivXtoDVD is Good for what it does but it doesn"t let you have any Controll over the encodeing Quality and is Missing essential Settings that are needed for High quality encodeing and it only lets you make the Most Basic of DVD"s with No Menu"s or chapter creation and you can only put one file on a DVD at a Time and it only supports One of the 4 DVD Standards and I can go on for ever..
    It is basicly just very simplistic and geared for those who don"t want to learn how to make a Top Quality DVD with multiple Menu"s and proper Nagivation perameters ,You know like a DVD"s you rent from the Video Store......

    You Can use DivXtoDVD to Put this Bin file on to DVD (After you have first extracted the Mpeg file out of the Bin File) But this would entail DivXtoDVD Re-encodeing the File which will Greatly Reduce the Quality of the Video....

    If you use DVDLab you can Put this Movie on to DVD with Menu"s and Chapters and Scene Selections without re-encodeing the File and Ruining the Quality....

    I Here is a Basic Guide on how to Put SVCD Files on to DVD useing DVDLab ,It is basicly the same Process for VCD files as with SVCD Files so you can easilly adapt this Guide if you have to...

    This bin/cue thing: it's a CD image that you can directly burn. So, one thing you could do is first burn it to a CD (for example with Nero), then you can see what is on there. Next you can copy the files from the CD to your hard drive and then do whatever you want with them. Anothe possibility is the use of a virtual drive utility that can directly load a CD image, for example Alcohol120%. In this case you don't need to burn a CD, but you can just copy the filse you wnat directly from the virtual disk to your hard drive.

    All of this Is explained in the Guide and the Guide explains how to Put a Movie that is in 2 Bin files on a single DVD....

    You Can actually fit up to 6 Bin/Cue Movies on a single DVD-R so if you have some others you also might want to put them all on the same DVD .....

    i am going through your guide. I am using a trial version of alcohol 120 for the 2 bin files. Im stuck at the part where it says to use mpeg-VCR. this is about the section of converting the audio. I cant find mpeg-vcr. Where is this located. Is it on the trial version?

    You don"t necessarilly need to use Mpeg2VCR...You can also use the "Merge & Cut" feature in "Tmpgenc Pluss" to join your Mpeg-2 files and DVDLab Pro will resample the audio to 48000hz for you....

    So to join the 2 Mpeg files useing Tmpgenc you just run Tmpgenc and go to "File" to "Mpeg tools" to "Merge & Cut" and then Load in the First Part of the Movie and then Load in the second part and then click the "Run" Button at the Bottom and in a few Minutes you will have a Joined Mpeg file...After Joining the File look at it on your PC Just to make sure that it doesn"t go out of Sync after the second part Begins which can sometimes happen with Files Joined useing Tmpgenc.....

    After this you Just load the Mpeg file into DVDLab Pro and use the Instructions from the Guide.....Cheers

    Your right. Using vsodixv2dvd has left me totally stupid to all other methods. I am so confused. I dont even care if i merge the two bin files or not. I just want to somehow burn them onto a bloody dvd! I dont even care if i have to use two dvd. Just give me the dummy simplest way of doing this and i'll work my way up! thanks for your extreme patience.

    im probably in the wrong forum type here so sorry to you all if i am but i am desperate for help here. my pc crashed a few weeks ago and after loading it back up again i find that my slave hdd has been set to an active partition. anyways i had to delete the partition and allocate a new one in order to be able to assign a letter and drive path to see it in my computer well on that drive were all the pics of my pet birds and some birthday pics i have managed to recover a few but one file i did recover will allow me to retireve the lot. its called gobackio.bin and it is 8GB in size i have the cue sheet thanks to the help of another afterdawn member but i cannot burn the file as it is too big to burn to disc unless i use a dual layer disc. my question is can i burn the image to a folder specified on my hdd so i can view the contents in that folder and select what i wish to restore plz help me i need those pics back
