    bin/cue CD burning

    If this is just a VCD with bin/cue files (I don't know what else comes in that format) and you only need to watch it on the Mac, i.e. not on a DVD or VCD player, you can just unstuff the bin file, and burn the AVsomething.DAT file to a disk, renamed as a .MPG file. This is really where all the video data is, and all that you need to play it if you're not worried about menus and other stuff that might be there.

    .mdf and .mds are Alcohol 120% formats. You'll need a PC and Alcohol 120% to burn those. I have Alcohol 120% and I can rip either ISOs or BIN/CUEs and burn them on my Mac (no burner on the PC). Even copyprotected PC cds. However, trying to burn .mds/.mdf on a mac is pretty much moot. I hear that blindwrite (PC only) can convert mds/mdf to .ccd/.img, dunno if that helps though. (CCD is a CloneCD format *PC Only*).

    BIN/CUE formats can be used for any CD, but are primarily used for CDs with audio tracks and Data tracks (and VCDs as the above mentioned).

    I always use FireStarter FX to burn .bin/.cue files. Toast failed on me quite often for them, but with this app I didn't have any problems anymore. It's a little ugly and it's still beta, but it works great. And you can overburn with it.
