    is it possible to convert bin/cue files to avi?
    i can burn off avi files with sonic, so was wondering if you can convert bin/cue, kvcd, scd ect to avi?, if so what sort of converter would you suggest? ( a freeware would be nice lol)

    You are referring to cd image files (video)?
    There are a couple of free tools available that are quite capable and not hard to figure.


    Prog which you can use to convert the bin/cue files to mpeg:
    http://www.vcdgear.com/download.html
    Download vcdgear 355.It has the documentation and the other required files.
    Bonus Note:you can also use this prog to convert mpeg to bin/cue files (cd images).

    Then convert the mpeg to avi with virtualdub-mpeg2:

    http://fcchandler.home.comcast.net/stable/index.html

    A guide for virtualdub-mpeg2:
    the guide refers to an earlier version, but you can figure it out.
    You will need a divx codec installed.

    A half hour video can be processed in five minutes.
    Good luck.

    People always seem to forget the easiest way to rip bin/cue.. Use this program or that.. no need.....

    Mount the bin/cue pair on a virtual drive (nero and alcohol120 both have them, and then rip it just like a physical disk. I use dvd::rip, but any dvd-avi application will do.

    I didn't infer (I hope) that my suggestions were canononical.
    They are simply in the spirit of the original query;ie "freeware".

    ^^ Not at all.. I just look at what people will probably already have and try to use existing facilities rather than getting more and more unnecessary applications and clutter. Mounting the image as a disk also has the advantage of allowing the ripping of a full 1-1 copy with all audio channels/subtitles/menus/extras intact by using all the latest applications. All a matter of personal taste, just happens to be the way I do it as linux is a little short to say the least of dvd ripping tools. I think my aversion to collecting clutter stems from being a *nix user

    VCDGear is by far the easiest way to extract the mpegs and will also fix various mpeg errors. Loading virtual drives, ripping, renaming DAT files... pain in the neck.
