Fireburner has a nice built in bin/cue to iso converter. But I like to use WinISO.

Thanks for the reply aztechya...

With Fireburner, which 'Save Track Options' do I use?

How do I extract tracks from BIN/CUE files? What happened to BINChunker?

BINChunker is still alive and kicking. It has been fully integrated into FireBurner. You do not need a CD reader or recorder to run FireBurner. To extract tracks from BIN/CUE files this is what you do:

1. Go into Visual Cue Burner
2. Right click on the track layout
3. Hit "Load Tracks from *.Cue" and specify the location of your Cue file
4. At this point all the tracks from the Cue should be loaded from the Bin file. You should see them in the track layout. Now, select the tracks you want to extract. You can multi-select tracks by holding down CTRL and clicking.
5. Right click again and hit Save Track(s) As

Note: You can corruption scan tracks in the same way. Just hit Corruption Scan instead of Save Tracks As.

I figured out how to use it. I was just wondering which options to use for Mode 1 & 2 (from Configuration > Save Track Options).

I think if you open the cue file in a text editor it indicates mode and sector size.

Okay, I've tried Fireburner and WinISO and I've noticed that both shrink the file size dramatically when converting from bin to iso. What's being removed?

I often use WinISO v5.3 to convert BIN/CUE to ISO since ISO files are less-sized. Basically, nothing.

For many things, I use WinISO v5.3 and WinRAR v3.x. WinISO to create ISO files and WinRAR to "store" folders and files into one file (zero compression for maximum speed).

To split and re-join files, RZSplit2002 and WinRAR.

To load ISO and other CD image files, Daemon Tools v3.23.

To burn CD image files and other things on CD and HDD, Nero.

To (re-)encode audio and video files, Microsoft's own Windows Media Encoder 9 beta. (I don't "rip" CD and DVD that often.)

To play audio and video files, Microsoft's own Windows Media Player v6.4 for most things and South Korean-made Adrenaline/Swan's MP/Sasami2000/etc for special (and multi-lingual) subtitle features.

is there a way to control the compression rate (and hence speed) in WinZip? i understand it is possible in WinRar. i looked in WinZip's Options but couldn't find it.

i benchmarked a little to compare the twp progs.
in compression winzip was a little faster, the rar file was a little smaller, not significant.
decompression - winzip was a lot faster, about twice as fast
i was sort of expecting the results to be the other way around - winrar to be much better.
(about 500MB file of some 8000 files).

Use the classic interface, and select from the "Compression" drop-down in the "Add" files dialog:

WinZip remembers the last setting you used even after you exit the program, and continues to use it for all subsequent sessions until you change it again. This could be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on your point of view.

I recommend SuperSpeed.com's RamDisk XP Pro for such jobs. Several times faster than usual HDD in compressing and decompressing thousands of files.
