You'll need to install Alcohol 120% and burn it with that mate. It's just the same as bin & cue but Alcohol 120%'s format.

The nero trick don't work, The reason people use Alcohol is that it can copy protected discs (SafeDisc Securerom etc). If that type of protection is present, Nero does not stand a chance. Nero is actually quite a poor burning app even for a unprotected discs.

I think Alcohol is a great wee program. For PC games I just add a virtual drive with Alcohol 120% and mount the image. No need for discs at all. And as Blackbeard has pointed out, it will burn protected discs.

It's the best image burner I've came across.

Had this problem when I downloaded fifa street 2 for the xbox, the progam would only accept .iso and .img to extract and ftp to the xbox... After 2days of searching for a program to do it I decided to rename it and yep you guessed right! It worked without any problems!

I don't understand why Alcohol 120% doesn't recognise them. There Alcohol 120% images?

Try using Magic Iso to unpack the image?

some times when i have to burn a file with nero and its not supported, when pointing to the file i have to change it to ALL FILES,just click the scrool down just under the file name when selecting your file.
