    if you are running OS 9 you need to install some burning software like Adaptec Toast (should come with the burner). if you are on OS X then you just put a blank CDR in the drive, it will come up on the desktop, drag and drop your files onto it, then select burn CD in one of the menus.

    if the files are CD images then you need to use a program like Toast that can burn an image file to a CD. i'm not sure if .bin and .cue are image files though. or if you can mount the image then you can do a CD to CD copy using Toast. Toast works for both OS 9 and OS X.

    I use bin2iso. Basically it's a command line program. Just drop it into a folder with the bin/cue file and type

    %./bin2iso name_of_cue_file.cue

    It will then convert the bin and cue to a nice iso which you can burn easily with toast.

    .bin is the raw data
    .cue is the cuesheet, a small textfiles which contains information about the number and position of tracks on the cd.

    On the pc, I use Nero or Fireburner. Toast should be able to handle it perfectly if you drag and drop the .cue file. And there's also Nero for Mac IIRC.

    Grin. Most of what I download is movies, which I watch 'n delete.

    The rest, programs, I burn. If I download a game (occasionally), I use D-Tools. Which is, indeed, a very nice program :)
