Thread: I need to create cue/bin files from a cd

    Default I need to create cue/bin files from a cd

    Heya,

    I have an old dos game on cd. I can't make it work from dosbox using the cd, so I need to make cue and bin files of it.

    How do I do that?

    Best regards,

    Take a look at Isobuster, it's supposed to do the job. IIRC there's a trick to change a .iso to a .bin, done some searching but couldn't find it anymore.

    Hmm...this project will take some time. All I've managed so far is to create a .nrg image from my stationary machine, using Nero under windows. Now I'm trying to convert that to an iso-file. Apparently thats no easy task...

    Code:
    nrg2iso --help
    Nrg2Iso v0.4 by G. Kokanosky
    released under the GNU GPL v2 or later
    
    Usage :
    nrg2iso image.nrg image.iso
    
    --version    display version number
    --help       display this notice
    Yeah, extremely difficult indeed.

    There's one for that: nrg2iso !!! It's on the page as well, installing can be done from Software.openSUSE.org, search for nrg2iso, install it, works like this:

    Let's say you have a 'TEST.nrg' in your homedir. Open a terminal window, and this is it:
    Code:
    nrg2iso TEST.nrg TEST.iso
    IIRC after running it, the header of the .nrg will be changed and the .nrg will be renamed to .iso, done.

    Edit: Akoelh posted in the meantime, take that in as well.

    To be fair I managed to figure it out on my own too, after posting that message. I now have a perfectly functioning iso-file. I was so busy tryong out the new iso-file, I forgot to post here that I actually solved it. But thanks for the help anyway !!

    And to answer the primary question "how to create bin/cue from a CD under linux" (for whatever reason):

    create bin/cue from CD linux - google search

    Now that was really difficult (and cdrdao is your friend).
