Bin and Cue Support for Linux

Filed under: Quick Linux Tutorials — TheLinuxBlog.com at 2:35 pm on Tuesday, March 18, 2008

If you have a bin/cue image that you need to use under Linux you may be in for a surprise. I recently downloaded a copy of a game that I owned but was too scratched to use. The problem was the game came in bin / cue format. To fix this I just used a nifty little program called bchunk and converted it to ISO. It can be found here: http://he.fi/bchunk/

I would really like to find a way to mount bin and cue images under Linux but so far I’m not having any luck. I’m wondering if with some modification the bchunk program could be used with fuse.
