    I have a rather large bin file, and I have already tried using WinISO but unfortunately it won't allow for more than 3MB of extraction.

    Any help?

    Thanks,

    Chris

    Its a CD image file. Several burning programs are available, and while I generally prefer Nero - CDRwin tends to work best for .bin files. Unfortunately, I am not aware of any method to extract the files you are looking for without physically burning the CD. Hope that helps- [​IMG]

    .bin in most cases will be a 'binary' Mac file. As Don mentioned, you can download Stuffit Expander for free which should do the trick.
    You can grab that here: http://www.stuffit.com/expander/

    Chris,
    grab ISOBuster from www.isobuster.com . You'll also need the associated .CUE file that goes with the .BIN you have (the .bin is just binary data, and the .cue tells the burning/extracting program how many tracks there are and what format etc).

    I've also had quite a good experience with Daemon Tools, over at http://www.daemon-tools.com
    Can load a CD image into a "virtual CD-ROM" and it works very well.
