You need to burn the . bin file to a cd. You can burn .bin files with nero. Choose burn image. But you will need to have a CUE file for this to work.

How to make a .cue file for a .bin file
The .cue file is needed to burn the bin file. You can use nero.

For instance: The bin file name is myfirstburn.bin

Make the cue file with notepad. Name the file myburn.cue
In this file write exactly:

FILE "myfirstburn.bin." BINARY
TRACK 01 MODE1/2352

INDEX 01 00:00:00

Save this file and the bin file in a folder and open Nero. Choose burn image and point it towards the folder you saved the files in.

To install bin files without burning to cd I use Daemon Tools. click here It's a virtual drive and you shouldn't need a cue file. Just install mount the bin file and away you go. One thing, I have heard Deamon Tools does sometimes conflict with Roxio Easy CD, just incase you have it installed.
