I don't know if this is right/the same thing, but the only .bin file I've ever seen was a CD image generated with something like Roxio.

Couldn't do jack with it until I found a program called 'bin2iso' which allowed me to convert it to an ISO image I could mount/burn etc. The Linux binary ran fine under emulation, although the code is kind of light on parameter checking 'n stuff (you can make it dump core really easily, IIRC), but it did the job on the .bin file for me.

I'm sure there'll be a later version around than the one I still have from last year, but let me know if you can't find one.
