BinChunker converts a CD image in a ".bin / .cue" format (sometimes ".raw / .cue") to a set of .iso and .cdr tracks.

The bin/cue format is used by some popular non-Unix cd-writing software, but is not supported on most other CD burning programs. A lot of CD/VCD images distributed on the Internet are in BIN/CUE format, I've been told.

This is a Unix/C rewrite of the fine BinChunker software. The non-Unix version of BinChunker has been obsoleted by the CD-R/W burning software FireBurner, which can be found at

FireBurner does a lot more than BinChunker did, but can be used to do exactly the same even without a burner device installed. Thanks go to Bob Marietta , the author of BinChunker, for the extensive help, documentation and letting me look at his Pascal/Delphi source code!

The .iso track contains an ISO file system, which can be mounted through a loop device on Linux systems, or written on a CD-R using cdrecord. The .cdr tracks are in the native CD audio format. They can be either written on a CD-R using cdrecord -audio, or converted to WAV (or any other sound format for that matter) using sox. bchunk 1.1.0 can also output audio tracks in WAV format.

bchunk compiles and runs on any host with an ANSI C compiler, and somewhat POSIX.1 compliant environment. It has been tested on the following platforms:

  • Linux 2.0, i686, glibc 2.0.7, gcc (RedHat 5.1)
  • Linux 2.2, i686, glibc 2.1.1, egcs 1.1.2 (RedHat 6.0)
  • Linux 2.4, i686, glibc 2.2, gcc 2.96 (RedHat 7.0)
  • Linux 2.6, i686, glibc 2.3, gcc 3.2.2 (RedHat 9.0)
  • Solaris 2.5.1, SPARC, gcc 2.7.2
  • Solaris 2.6, SPARC, gcc 2.8.1
  • Digital Unix 4.0c, Alpha, DEC C V5.2-033
  • SGI IRIX 6.5.7m, MIPS R4600 IP22, gcc 2.95.2
  • Mac OS X 10.1.4, gcc 2.95.2

    OpenBSD, FreeBSD and NetBSD all have a port of bchunk available in their respective archives for a very good set of hardware platforms.

    What's New in This Release:
  • Included a man page patch from the openbsd port of bchunk (adding a note about ISO/VCD), and s/ISO9110/ISO9660/. The changes were for openbsd by Dave Watson .

  • Patch from Matthew Green for a new option -r, which makes binchunker output MODE2/2352 tracks in raw format, from offset 0 for 2352 bytes.
