Convert .bin and .cue files to an .iso image

To convert a .bin and .cue file combination into a iso image file in Linux, you need a handy tool called Binchunker. Most tools on Linux require a ISO image (mounting, extracting, etc), so .bin and .cue files will need to be converted first.

Install Binchunker:

$ sudo apt-get install bchunk

Convert the .bin and .cue combo to a .iso image:

$ bchunk cdimage.bin cdimage.cue output

This will create an iso file with the naming format of outputXX.iso, where XX is a number based on the track that is being exported. Eg. output01.iso for the first track.


$ bchunk cdimage.bin cdimage.cue output
