    Ok I had this stuff pretty well running smoothly.I was using VSOdivxtoDVd to convert all my files and then would run the auto VSO copytodvd function.This worked smoothly.But I have gotten some movie files that are bin/cue files and my converter only picks up the sample file in the folder.So Im taking it that it doesnt convert bin/cue files.I went through alot of mumbo jumbo to be able to convert my other ones and it was simply tow downloads of software to do this and it has worked easily.Can someone give me an understandable instructional fix on this without all the mumbo junk?

    Bianaca29, I was searching for answers to the very same question yesterday (01-18-07) and found nothing but guess's, "i think so's", "what do you want to that for's?" and programs that didn't work worth a crap. Anyway, I found my answer on another forum and MysticE's advice here is perfectly on track. vcdgear is free, simple, small & converts bin/cue to mpeg very easily. When I went to load the cue, it said it couldn't find the bin file, after I clicked "o.k." I had the option to select the bin file and did so, I then clicked "open" then "start". It saved it in less than five minutes in the same folder that the bin/cue files were in. From there I used vso's divxtodvd,(freeware also)and having a blank dvd-r in the tray it burned it as soon as it finished converting it. That part (converting and burning) took a couple of hours. I hope this helps. xxxzzz893 :)

    I presume you are aware that you can burn bin & cue files direct to CD disc as a viewable movie on a DVD player? What's therefore the point of converting?

    Your welcome. I just discovered however that the original bin cue files were deleted after conversion and I wasn't done uploading. Oh, and why do the dvd instead of cd? Cuz not all dvd players will play off a cd. Thanks everyone, xxxzzz893.
