HowTo convert bin/cue to iso in Mac OS X

posted in mac os x |

Since Parallels doesn’t like .bin/.cue images, i had to convert it into an .iso image. A few guides pointed out that simple renaming of the files might be enough, but that didn’t work at all. So i was searching for free-ware solutions and couldn’t find anything. Toast Titanium was the last chance.

You simply right click on the .bin file and open it with Toast. Next you click “Save As Disc Image”.

Finally you just rename the file extension from the default .toast to .iso.

After a minute Toast was ready and i was able to boot from the .iso image in Parallels. Worked for me.

    Your post is the top result on Google for this problem!

    I’ve found a freeware solution, using the open source software “binchunker”. It is available on Macports. Use the terminal to run these commands:

    sudo port install bchunk
    bchunk IMAGE.bin IMAGE.cue OUTPUTIMAGE.iso

    Quick and easy!

    Awesome, binchunker worked well. Remember people, you have to install macports first, but since I had it already installed, this took me 30 seconds max

    bchunck should work on ppc as well. Macports will take care of the compile shit for you so… 😉 Just give it a go.

    Thanks for showing an easy way to convert those bin files to Iso. In fact, I had to follow EXACTLY the procedure explained. If I dragged the bin or cue to the toast screen, it didn’t work. As well, I did not need to rename to iso. Toast mounted the image as a Cd that I could read perfectly.
    Thank you very much.
    PS. I tried Bchunker FE, an GUI version of Bchunker with ZERO succes …. I could not make it work.

    Oh joy! that command line crap (ie. bcchunk and the like) didn’t work for me…..so this is awesome. I also hear that you can convert .bin files in VLC using the streaming/export wizard. don’t know which is easier, but i will def. give your method a shot! thanks for posting this!

    Naturally, compiling fails. Any other ideas?

    Bchunk 1.2 from Macports worked just fine for me. Not sure what problems you guys were having. IMHO that was the easiest and fastest way of converting to an .iso that I’ve ever done.

    I have a bin/cue file that contains wavs on top of the cd data

    Bitchunk produces an iso and the wavs in several separate files.

    Using Toast 8.0.3 the save as iso is grayed out. When mounting the bin/cue I get a CD on the desktop but not the wavs.

    At the end I couldn’t save an iso of the whole CD and burned it into an actual cd.

    I’m wondering if this cd is something like an data cd + audio cd all in one and that is the reason of not being able to save it as an image…

    anyhooo.. thnx
