you could use WinISO to do this. it is available at http://www.download.com. just go to the "convert" menu and select "bin to iso". but it doesnt always work well. it depends on what the bin is a cd image of.

You can use bin2iso. It's a small 32Kb tool and works fine for me.

I think it's probably better to do that because bins and isos are different sizes, so I don't think just changing the extension would work too well. It also means you can fit 800Mb BIN files on 700Mb Cd-rs.

WinISO has never let me down, and changing just the extension wont work

And yes ISOs are smaller, they can always fit in a cd

Let me just clarify something.

ISO = 1 track ONLY
BIN (+CUE) = Multiple tracks and sessions possible.

Merely changing the extension doesn't work all the time, only with a single track image, and not with all programs.
A burning app that relies on header info will fuxor the burn if it is expecting particular header formats.

IE if it's an audio CD you cannot convert it to ISO.
Or a game with more than one track, session etc (CDDA Audio or secondary data tracks)
