    Hi. I'm trying to burn a .bin file that's larger than my cd (760 mb vs. 700 mb). Any ideas? Can I split this into two files? Will it still install if I split it up? Thanks.

    Don,t worry about the size because that happened to me.
    I created bin file using clone cd (Tomb Raider 3)
    and the file appeared to be 800Mb and (Delta Force)
    818Mb,but when you burn them with alcohol 120 these
    files fit into the CD without problem.
    I did'nt try other software exept Alcohol and clone cd
    but i think they do the same.Probably they compress
    the bin into CD.
    I used CD-RW verbatim 700mb cd

    BIN files have a lot of overhead so go ahead and burn the file away! :)
