The reason I ask this is that for the past 24 hours I've been reading everything about burning bin/cue files to cd-r (including How To's and Step by Step tutorials). There are answers for almost every questions I found related to my problem. The thing is that they all have to do with games or movies. If you have guess that I'm a newbie at this you are right ! The problem : I've got a Sample cd (drum beats, fx, etc / Akai format) and after unraring every .rar files I got a .bin and a .cue file (which seem fine). The thing is that I don't know how this should be used after the burning process. Does it become a perfect copy of the one found in stores ? Why should I make an Image ? Is an image a copy of an original cd ? or does it have another purpose ? Would changing the .bin file to .iso would make it easier ? I use CdrWin and/or Nero. Thank you very much in advance !!
