How do I burn PSX ROMS to a CD to play the game on my PlayStation?

dEen March 3, 2011

I have downloaded PSX ROMS from internet. It is in compressed form. When I uncompressed it, two files were produce which are .bin file & .cue file.

My question is, do I need to burn both files onto a CD in order to play the game on my PlayStation? Anything more I should do?

    Well it depends, figure out what the files are exactly (whether or not they are directly related to the game, which typically they are) and then test whatever theories you find.  I've only worked with a PS2 emulator with a PC, so I'm not sure how it works on a Playstation2

    Hello, the answer to your question is yes. You do need to burn both files to your cd. A .bin file is a universal form of a binary file. .bin files don't have an actual program used to open them. Usually a .bin file will also require a .cue file that goes with it. There are a few programs that can open both of these files. Some examples of these programs are Nero, ISO Buster, etc. .bin files are used everywhere and can be looked at in the same way as a file with no extension, which has multiple purposes.

    .cue files are files stored on plain text that tell the program running it how the tracks on a cd/dvd are organized. When you see a file with .bin and .cue files/extensions, it usually means that these files are an image copy of a cd/dvd. I would check if the images are correct before burning it to a disk. If you have a full folder of compressed .bin files you could try running the content with software like the following:

    Or you could mount it with Daemon Tools:
