Converting multiple BIN files to a single BIN file

Well with this little guide you will soon be able to quickly and easily convert rips with multiple .bin files into rips with single .bin files – and best of all it won’t cost you a single penny!

First of all you will need some software. The software I’m going to be using is 100% free and legal – no hacks, no cracks and no nasty ‘activation’ programs that may or may not be viruses! You’re going to need the following:

– Whilst Daemon Tools is premium software they offer a free to use ‘lite’ version that has limited functionality compared to the premium version. For what we need it for though the free ‘lite’ version is absolutely fine (though of course do consider supporting the people that make this awesome piece of software by buying the premium version if you find it useful).

– This is a free, open source disc burning program. If you’re thinking you already have a different burning program so you may as well use that instead then think again – some other programs use different methods and will not yield correct results. Prime examples being Nero and Alcohol 120%. If you want to use a different program then fine but just be aware your mileage may vary.

Okay so now that you’ve downloaded and installed Daemon Tools Lite and ImgBurn it’s time to get started…

Fire up Daemon Tools and click on the ‘Quick Mount’ button on the bottom left of the window, then navigate to the directory containing your game rip and choose to mount the .cue file (NOT any of the .bin files).



Your image should now be mounted inside a virtual CD/DVD ROM drive (which should have been assigned a drive letter by Windows – note this letter down as we’ll need it in a minute) just as if you’d put an actual disc in an actual disc drive.

Once your image is mounted leave Dameon Tools running and open up ImgBurn. Select the option ‘Create image file from disk’.



On the next screen change the source drop-down box to the drive containing your mounted image (denoted by the drive letter you noted down earlier) then select a destination for the output image in the next box down (I usually create a new folder on my desktop for this but you can put it anywhere you like it doesn’t really matter). You may also want to give the output file a more meaningful file name at this point too. I’ve also changed the “Read Speed” setting on the bottom right to 1x for better compatibility but this is optional.



Now hit the button to start the process (the disc icon with the blue arrow next to it at the bottom left of the window), sit back, relax and wait for the process to finish. On modest hardware this shouldn’t take more than a few minutes, and likely considerably less than that on most modern computers.

Once finished you should be presented with a window saying “Operation Successfully Completed!”.



Now if you look in your destination folder you should see a single .bin and .cue file.
