first of all.. can you play the .bin file in windows media player?? open wmp and go to file open and then select the bin file.

If it does not play, then you cannot convert it as is.


Second, see if the bin file will burn as an iso... if that doesnt work.. i dont know

every .bin file I've usually had was a cd image. I prefer using cdrwin to burn those but not sure what else supports burning those as an image.

If it is a movie, it sounds like what you've got is something that was too large to fit on a CD (ie: 800+ megs), and was converted to a .bin file, which fakes CD burners into thinking it's VCD, which you would burn in Mode 1 (you can't burn data in Mode 1 any other way), because Mode 1 ignores all the error correcting bits added to Mode 2 burning, and because of that, actually frees up close to another hundred megs or more on a CD.

Those sites should help answer the question better than I am. But basically, you can't convert it to a .wmv. What you have to do is burn it to a CD, or use those sites to find a program to read the .bin file, and you can watch the movie that way.

All the BIN files I have downloaded have been VCD's or SVCD's, basically it's a format used to burn CD's (a layout). You then play the VCD or SVCD in your DVD Player or on your computer using your DVD software (such as WinDVD or PowerDVD).

I use a program called Alcohol 120% to burn image files (*.iso or *.bin) but you can also use Nero Burning ROM or Easy CD Creator.

Also there is a program called IsoBuster that you can use to extract the MPEG 2 or MPEG files from a *.bin or *.iso file, this will let you extract the movie from the bin file to the hard drive without having to burn a CD (or two). Do a search for it on Google. It's pretty self explanitory.
