Now that physical disks are no longer in use, everything will be downloaded directly to your device from the Internet. Most of these downloads are done by the corresponding program. Sometimes they are presented as .bin files, which cannot be used immediately. To use them, you have to convert that BIN file to an ISO. Here’s how.

What is a .bin file?

A BIN file with a .bin suffix is a binary file. It is usually a raw byte to byte copy of a source file, such as a clone of a source disk or file. Every bit and every byte is in the same place as the original. For more complex programs and even some games, they can be downloaded as .bin files and then converted.

What is an ISO file?

An ISO file (often called an ISO image) is an archive file that contains an identical copy (or image) of data on an optical disc, such as a CD or DVD. They are often used for backing up optical media. Or to distribute large groups of files that you want to burn to an optical disc. This is a disc image that you can burn directly to a CD or DVD or use with a virtual drive such as Daemon Tools. It still contains binary data, but it can be formatted. To make it usable as bootable media, such as a DVD of games or programs, we need to convert BIN files to ISO files.

Although many people use ISO images to back up their optical disks. Today ISO images are mostly used to distribute large programs and operating systems. Because it allows all the files to be in one easily downloadable file. Users can then deploy the image or use it to burn an optical disc.
