Skip this section, solved - read post 3 for solution. New problem under -------

Hi, i need to mount a .bin file so have searched how and looks like it needs to be converted to a .iso file first. I have downloaded bchunk upon reading others success with the software. This is the command i used (replacing the file names with the appropriate file locations+names -


I used bchunk to convert my bin/cue to iso
Code:

sudo apt-get install bchunk

Code:

bchunk filename.bin filename.iso myconvertedfile



but the terminal just displays -


mckenzie@mckenzie-home:~$ bchunk /media/680gb/rct/tt.bin /media/680gb/rct/tt.iso myconvertedfile

Could not open CUE /media/680gb/rct/tt.iso: No such file or directory


I thought the command would create the .iso file? what am i doing wrong? and is there a way to get it working?

SOLVED
-----------------------------------------

New Problem
Ok so now i have a .isz file which i need to extract or mount. The software i used for the .bin doesnt work, any solutions?

cheers

alls good, i ended up using AcetoneISO from http://sourceforge.net/projects/acetoneiso2/files/AcetoneISO/AcetoneISO2%202.0.2/acetoneiso2_20080508-1_i386.deb/download

mounts .bin and .iso and does a lot more, with a GUI! my favorite :)

I take it you installed the 10 packages to satisfy the dependencies? Or was that available in the repositories?

Update: My silly mistake, I forgot Deb package installer will install the dependencies too.

Wow, I just checked it out -- I see on the menu it rips DVD's to Xvid avi? Gonna have to give that a spin. Anyone else with more experience on this?

Yes it works, it might not give you a lot of features while converting it to xvid but it's meant on purpose to be easy as 1 click. And as you can see there are a lot of features in AcetoneISO :)
