HOW TO MOUNT *.BIN FILES IN LINUX

22 Sept 2009

To mount *.bin files under Linux, you'll need first to convert them to *.iso and then mount them as usual.

We'll be using a little utility called ccd2iso (grab it from here). Install as:

./configure
make && make install

Then, transform *.bin into *.iso:

ccd2iso /tmp/example.bin /tmp/example.iso

And finally, mount the iso under a directory at choice:

mount -o loop -t iso9660 /tmp/example.iso /mnt/isopoint/

If you have two files (one *.bin and one *.cue), use a small utility called bchunk:

bchunk 
binchunker for Unix, version 1.2.0 by Heikki Hannikainen <hessu@hes.iki.fi>
        Created with the kind help of Bob Marietta <marietrg@SLU.EDU>,
        partly based on his Pascal (Delphi) implementation.
        Support for MODE2/2352 ISO tracks thanks to input from
        Godmar Back <gback@cs.utah.edu>, Colas Nahaboo <Colas@Nahaboo.com>
        and Matthew Green <mrg@eterna.com.au>.
        Released under the GNU GPL, version 2 or later (at your option).
 
Usage: bchunk [-v] [-r] [-p (PSX)] [-w (wav)] [-s (swabaudio)]
         <image.bin> <image.cue> <basename>
Example: bchunk foo.bin foo.cue foo
