What is a bin file and how do I open a bin file?

A BIN, or binary file, is a computer file that is not a text file. It may contain any type of data encoded in binary form for computer storage and processing purposes. BIN files have many uses but CD images and ROMs seem to be the most common because the format can contain all of the information from its original source.

Files with the BIN extension are often created by several different types of disk image development and editing software. The content of a BIN file consists of data in binary form that was copied from a disk unto the output file. The BIN file is referenced by disk image software when a user opens the BIN file using these applications and disk image mounting programs integrated with support for the image files. Files with the CUE extension may be created by a BIN file, and these CUE files contain metadata information referencing the data structure saved into the associated BIN file. Users of systems with disk image creation and mounting software can try to replace the BIN extension with the ISO extension if they are unable to open a BIN file. To access a BIN file, it must either be burned to an external disk or mounted to a computer using virtual drive software.
