Treat *.bin, *.cue, *.iso as virtual CD or DVD without burning them.

You can save your blank CD and your blank DVD and finally save your money if you learn this one. I got a lot of *.bin, *.cue, *.iso from the net, before learn this I always burn those file in CD or DVD to be able to open those file, but now I never need CD or DVD to open those file. Don’t know about those file, here a little information for you: those file extensions are commonly used to show that a file is an image of a CD or DVD. The simplest way to access these files is to use your CD or DVD Burner to burn them to a disk. Nero is a common program that is used to burn bin/cue files to hard media.

If you don’t want to burn those files in CD and DVD than you can use a program to make virtual drive in your computer, and after that you can load those file in virtual drive and then open those file just like open CD or DVD. I personally used ‘Daemon Tool’ and ‘Nero’ as programs that provide me virtual drives. You can search internet for Daemon Tool, and the good news is this program is free.

Enjoy ...

Great tip, I know a lot of people don't know the power of BIN Files. You might want to elaborate on what ISO, BIN files are just for the ones that don't know. I know I encounter them a lot with video downloads. Keep up the good work.
