How can I convert an iso cd image to bin/cue format on a mac?



How can I convert an iso cd image to bin/cue format on a mac? I did some Googling, but couldn't find a solution, ended up having to use some freeware tool for windows in a VM :/

If anyone found this post because they were trying to do the reverse (convert bin/cue to an iso) take a look here: Worked for me. You can download bchunk and run "bchunk problemimage.bin problemimage.cue convertedimage.iso"

LiquidCD can write CUE/BIN files. The process would be the same as actually creating an image from the disc.

  • Mount ISO image on the Mac
  • Point LiquidCD to the Mounted Image
  • Write CUE/BIN File

I did this before to convert an ISO to a DMG.

The iso image I'm converting also contains some CD audio tracks. Will they be converted as well with this method? – Mike Akers – 2009-07-15T14:48:58.703

I've been trying to rip some PS1 games to play in emulators for ages now, and this is the only program I could find that made working BIN/CUE images out of the ISOs I ripped with Disk Utility. – FrogBot – 2014-09-13T05:34:43.250

You will have to test and try, I am not sure. LiquidCD however does support extracting Music so it might be able to. I hardly ever deal with Audo CD's – BinaryMisfit – 2009-07-15T15:10:27.107


PowerISO has a Mac command line utility for converting between ISO, BIN, DAA, and other formats.

poweriso convert input.img -o output.bin -ot bin

Toast Titanium will do it, but its by no means free.

There's a handy little command line tool to do BIN/CUE -> ISO, but I can't find one to do the reverse.

1+1 ...that's what I was trying to do. Works great. – username – 2009-11-23T13:36:23.780


FYI, Disk Utility built into OS X can burn .ISO files natively. Just select 'Burn' from the toolbar in Disk Utility and choose your .ISO file and Disk Utility will burn it, all without additional software
