Mount .bin-encoded disk images with Disc Copy
Authored by: bill_mcgonigle on Aug 26, '04 04:04:55PM
.bin is a totally different kind of image, originating from a totally different OS. It's terrible to confuse people like that. (Namely me)

.bin has been the macbinary file extention for about twenty years. Before that I'm sure other people used it for generic binary files. Just because some knucklehead decided to use it for video cd's in the late 90's doesn't mean it's proper.

That's why mime-types were invented, anyhow, extensions are too small of a namespace.

Anyway, to stay on topic, .bin encodes some finder information as well as resource forks.
