    A .bin is a cd/dvd image, similar to a .iso or .nrg.
    It could also be a Mac binary file.

    If its a Mac binary image then StuffIt Expander (free) will open it.
    If it came with a .cue file then its a cd image and you'll need something like Titanium or FireStarterFX -
    or VCDtoolsX.

    Do you have good burning software installed? e.g. Roxio Titanium?
