You need a .cue file to go along with the bin file, you load the .cue file (which is just a text file explaining what file contains the data, (the bin file), and how to burn it)
   
    You can use CDRwin or Nero to burn bin/cue images to cd, there may be others but these are the most popular

You can also use a program called ISO Buster, which is a free download, to extract the contents of the bin file if you do not have the cue file availiable. Here is the link:

.bin files usually are self-extracting archives. If just clicking the file in your file manager doesn't work, you have to make it executable first by typing this command in a terminal and then pressing the ENTER key:

chmod +x [file]

Replace [file] with the name of the archive. Then run it:

./[file]

If you get an error message about a 'bad interpreter', use this command:

sh [file]

With your .bin file there should be a .cue file (as previosly mentioned). This .cue file can be mounted to a virtual drive using i.e. Virtual Daemon Manager, and you should get access to the .bin file.

you can find VDM at www.daemon-tools.com

.bin files are as you allready guessed mostly used as cd-images.
if you just want to take a look into an image or you want to extract the contents or give it another format then you should use iso-buster:
download ISO-Buster at www.isobuster.com

if you want to burn it just name it into .nrg and open it with one of the newer nero versions (www.nero.com, cracks at www.cracks.am) the program should do the rest.

i hope i coult help ;)

A bin is binary, typically executable. For what you have on hand, the above may be applicable - but satisfactory? IMO, if you/I/we do not know what something is, then we should be very reluctant to give it a chance to spread potential evil. I suggest doing something else with your valuable time, there's just so many things to do, and so little time.

You linux people are gonna confuse the poster (:

In a linux world, things like chmod +x will allow you to make that .bin file executable.  I'm guessing that you're using Windows, and if you are, then it's a cd image that you've got on your hands.

Use isobuster like crogon said, or try to burn the file with nero from the FILE -> BURN IMAGE menu
