    Im trying to mount a bin file that i have downloaded.. I read stuffit does it.. but every time i open it with stuffit.. and the progress bar completes.. i dont see anything.. am i doing something wrong? If not, what other software can i try?

    Also something different.. On the top of my screen.. normally there is the time, date, airport admin and i think some other stuff.. for the past couple days ive noticed it hasnt been there. .and i cant get it back.. i went to the clock settings in the preferences but it keeps unchecking the box that says show clock what can i do?

    Do you have the FrontRow hack installed?

    BIN can refer to all kinds of files, including ISO disk images (Particularly if there's a CUE file to go with it). Try using file from Terminal to see what kind of file it thinks it is.

    You could try and rename it .ISO and see if you can mount it.

    Yep...search the forums for something like "frontrow" and "menu" and you'll see lots of threads describing the same problem you're having. The first step is to get rid of the hack, but some people say that they're still having problems. Look around to see if they eventually had success.
