    I have a folder which contains two video files. A .cue and a .bin.

    Can anyone tell me how to burn these files onto a DVD? Is there a step-by-step guide?

    Anyways, help would be greatly appreciated!

    I could, but the problem is that those files are usually in the form of illegal copyrighted material and I doubt the moderaters will allow any assistance.

    Jeez do I gotta give my whole life's story? First, it's not a movie, rather a 5 minute music video and 3 minute frame by frame animation that I had to do at school (communication technology course) . Teacher burned them as .cue and .bin for us, but sadly the guide he gave us to burn them is only for CD-R's. Doesn't work for DVD.

    Can I get help now (and whats the point of a multimedia thread if you can't post question's about burning.. will I be questioned every time I post here?)

    Simply trying to protect the owner of the website ;)

    What burning program do you have? I think something like Nero should work.

    .iso and .cue are not video files. They are virtual CD files which basically is a copy of a CD or DVD. You will need a virtual CD/DVD program. There are many available. www.download.com or www.majorgeeks.com will have them. DaemonTools is one, but they have some 'spyware' (WhenYouSaveNow) that will install with DT.

    Nero is also another one.

    I have nero, and according to the guide I have, it tells me to "burn an image" I do so, I put in the .cue file but then it only gives me an option to burn it as a cd-r. Is there a way to do it with a DVD?

    well is the bin file more than 700Mb? Also do you have a DVD burner? Because it should burn as a DVD if you have a DVD burner.

    No the bin file is 220mb. I can easily burn it onto a CD-r but I would rather use a DVD so I can play it on a DVD player and show it to ppl without having to crowd around a monitor.

    Well if the files are not in DVD format then you will need to get a DVD authoring program to burn it as a DVD.

    I don't think you are understanding the point. My guess is that when you burn the .bin file it will show the files on the CD and the files are going to be the video files. You have to burn them onto a CD or DVD first (obviously you should burn onto a CD because of it's size) then you will need to use that CD and use an authoring DVD program like Ulead to make it into a DVD that can be use in any DVD player.
