    Mounting .Cue/.Bin files without burning?


    Well, basically I have a cue file and a matching bin file that I would like to mount without having to actually burn them on to a cd?

    I tried mounting the .bin using the loopback device (mount -o loop file.bin directory/) but it didn't work since apparantly mount can't mount bin files, only ISO files.

    I tried converting the bin/cue to iso using bchunk and mounting that, but it didn't work either cuz it created two isos one 1mb and other 700mb, the first had just the filenames in it and the second had the data, and it wouldn't mount the second, so I couldn't copy anything from it to the hard drive.

    Any ideas of what I can use to directly mount the Cue/Bin?

    I'm using Debian Sid, kernel 2.4.21.

    If you just want to watch movies on the bin files, mplayer can read them natively.

    Also, there's bin2iso http://users.andara.com/~doiron/bin2iso/

    Checkout CDemu's download page @ http://cdemu.sourceforge.net/project.php#download

    You can add the launchpad repository and easily install it on ubuntu now ;-0
