If you're certain that the .bin file is an image of a disk then create a cue file for it using this trick

Bear in mind that other types of file use the .bin extension.

Pretty much all burning packages will unpack and burn this onto disk seamlessly for you without needing a separate "unpacking" stage.  But if you want to open it use 7-Zip or WinRAR, do you have the matching .cue file?

Agreeing with the above comment 7-zip is my favorite. Once installed just right click the .bin and extract to the same location. You can then drag the files to your CD-ROM and burn it. Also on a side note .bin files will be extracted simply by dragging them from their .bin containers (or into your CD-ROM).

Is it a binary file and not a disk image at all?  Is there a .cue file with it?
