How to convert BIN to ISO

Recently, I downloaded some IT software on my Windows PC and the files were all .BIN and .CUE files. In order to work with them, I needed to convert the BIN files to ISO and mount them as a drive.

MagicISO is a cool program that can convert BIN files or any other format file created by CD burning software to ISO, but it’s not free. I have it installed on my system, so I ended up using it.

But it got me thinking that there should be a free way to do this also! So after a little researching, I found some free software that you can use to do the conversion quickly.

AnyToISO Converter is a free ISO converter that supports many different formats and converts them to the ISO format.

To be a little more specific, it can convert BIN, PDI, MDF, NRG, CDI, B5I, and IMG images to ISO. It’s also pretty fast and gets the job done while only being 157 KB in size.

However, the best part is the it’s portable too! Now installation is required, so you can just dump it on a USB stick and convert images to ISO any time you want on any computer.

Just choose the Source Image file and give the resulting ISO file a name and click Convert! Wait a little while and your ISO will be ready soon.

Also, if you are not running on Windows, but maybe UNIX or Linux, then you can use a different program called bchunk to convert .CUE and .BIN files to ISO.

You can install the the software by typing in the following command:

yum install bchunk

Then in order to perform the conversion, all you have to do is use this command:

bchunk XYZ.bin XYZ.cue XYZ.iso

That’s it! So whether you are running on Windows, Linux, or UNIX, you can now convert BIN files to ISO for free! Enjoy!

    Unfortunately, the free version of anytoISO does not work on a video .bin files. In order to convert that one, you must buy the professional version of the software. There is, unfortunately, no trial or free version available to convert a video .bin file to an ISO.

    there used to be a program that converted cue files, in this case a collection of bin files, into ccd format. I would like to use the cue file to convert my bins into one big iso file.
