Can someone tell me how to burn a .bin file which I have been told I must burn in order to update the firmware for a home theatre system? File system CD-RomISO Level 2 I have been told. I tried magic iso but it wouldn't accept such a format.
Yours hopefully and thanks in advance

Thread: about .bin files
thanks - i will try it.
A .BIN image needs a .CUE file. Do you mean you've gotten a .BIN image without the respective .CUE file
Maybe you have a "non-BIN" image with an incorrect file extension.
As a "last resort", first try mounting the disc image with Daemon Tools, and then tell ImgBurn to copy the contents of the virtual DVD/CD.

Actually, I've seen a number of companies distribute firmware updates to their players as files with the .BIN extension (to indicate a binary file, not a BIN(/CUE) disc image). They usually want you to burn the file(s) to a data disc, often in the root folder, or do the same with a USB pen drive.
blossom34: Where did you download the .BIN file? They should also have instructions on how to create the disc that you'll use to update your home theater system's firmware. I'd check for that, first - some players/systems will only recognize the firmware if it's on a specific type of media (CD blanks vs. DVD blanks), in a specific folder on that disc... and, as I mentioned, you might even simply be able to do the update by copying the .BIN file to a USB flash drive.If cameras add ten pounds, why would people want to eat them?
thanks for responses. I download the file from philips. It was downloaded inside a zip file for a home theatre system. the instructions are that they know it is alone and not with a .cue file.
It says "file system CD-ROM ISO Level 2
Character set ISO 9660
write speed slow No UDF setting.
I assume by this that I must convert it to ISO using the above settings???? thanks
It sounds as if it should be written as data, as Ai Haibara suggested.
Yes, try burning the .bin file as-is to the root directory of a data CD (do not convert it to .ISO), and play the resulting data CD in the player/home theater system. (A DVD will probably work, although there's some systems/players that are picky about it. The instructions you quoted seem to prefer a data CD.)If cameras add ten pounds, why would people want to eat them?
use imgburn to create a data cd. open imgburn, insert blank cd, set mode to build, drag the .bin file into the window, check the options tab in the right panel match what is needed. burn cd.--
