Thanks Fireburner worked
weird tho because nero burnt the cd image ok but the files were corrupted on the actual cd.....I did notice it fail once in Fireburner aswell but I lowered burn speed from 52x to about 40x and it seems ok.....what speed do ppl normally lower from 52x for a more reliable burn?
Sounds like you're having more problems with the media you're using than with the form of the data (bin/cue). Have a look in the Media Compatibility Thread
for the entries for your burner.
Which media were you using? You might want to test your burns with KProbe
(LiteOn and OEMs only) or Nero CD-DVD Speed (part of Nero toolkit or direct from Erik Deppe at http://www.cdspeed2000.com/
