Creating disk images are a convenient way of backing up your optical disks (CD, DVD or BRD) in form of files stored on your hard disk. These disk images store every single byte exactly as it was on the original disk and you can use the special image burning software to burn them onto blank optical media to create exact replica of the original disk. As with everything else in computers, there are many different formats of disk images – BIN, CUE, ISO and more. Windows 7 and 8 support the ISO images natively, i.e., you can double-click on the ISO images to burn them on a blank optical media. But what if you downloaded a disk image in the BIN format? There is nothing to worry about – you can easily convert BIN disk images to the ISO format using the free WinBin2Iso software.
