    These are the burn instructions and data (one in each). Simply open in Toast to burn to a Disc or turn into a .dmg (disc image) to view the contents.

    thanks.

    but can i just turn them into a disc image using osx leopard disc utility? and then just drag the files over to my desktop after opening the image?

    or do i need toast to do anything at all?

    Toast will do the job if you have it.

    If you're lucky then you can just rename the .bin to .iso and mount it (if the sector size is 2048, have a look at the .cue file)

    Or you could try anytoiso on it.

    Failing that, find another source of the game/movie/music to download :D

    tried anytoISO, didnt work.
    i can use Toast at my work place.
    Can someone tell me simply how to make the two files into an iso using toast? i dont need to burn a dvd do i? if i make an iso. i can open the iso on the mac, and just drag the wanted files over to my desktop, correct?

    in the past ive had .iso files and they just open on OSX. eg no need to burn them onto dvd.
    (im talking about data stuff, not movies)

    cheers.

    You can just open the .bin file in toast and then 'save as disc image', the .toast is the same as .iso (you can rename it if you like). Or you can just mount the .bin file from within toast and then copy the files out.
