Question Torrent-BIN file help
Reply
Posted 05-23-2006, 07:44 AM
Some of the torrents I d/l end up being these BIN files. Which I don't know what to do with. Does this just mean I got a bunk torrent file?

Nope. It's kind of like an ISO file, bit BIN instead - basically all the data on the CD is stored in Binary in a BIN file.

I think the way to open them is to burn them to CD and open them...alternatively, try using Daemon Tools.

Ok. Well... I d/led that after Lenny told me too. Then, he gave me the instructions to the damn thing provided by the site. It seemed to me that, that program isn't intended for the purpose you two think it is. Unless either of you have actually used it, in which case I would need step by step instructions.

It creates a fake dvd drive, and runs the .bin off your computer as if you put a disk in. This should let you play the game. What is it you're trying to do?

Did you mount the .bin file? You have to run daemon tools, right click the system tray icon, and mount the .bin file. Then right click on the fake drive, explore, and find the video file. It might be in a strange folder, if it's a real DVD... and you might need a program like WinDVD.

"Unable to mount image. File not accessable."
Bah. I give up. I found the movie via P2P anyways, but I'll keep daemon around incase I get some more .bins
