Does anyone know a program which will play a .bin file without having to burn it?
Preferably something really simple because I don't really know much about computer stuff.
.bin are warez and warez is illegal here. Sorry can't help you (even if i know how to do it)

Oh if that is the case ignore my post.

.bin are not warez. They are cd image files, and there are plenty of legitimate uses for them. You can mount them using Daemon Tools, which is my personal favorite program. You will need the corresponding .cue file to mount it though (they aren't difficult to make yourself).
well most *.bin are. And as far as i know it its illegal to copy a CD even for own use. Be it a music CD or a data CD

Google .bin files.
One of the first hits is MagicISO, which is shareware, but is enough to allow you to access the files.
There is no such thing as an illegal file type.

Henk, unless laws have changed recently, it is perfectly legal to make a backup of CDs (or whatever) that you have purchased.
"well most *.bin are. And as far as i know it its illegal to copy a CD even for own use. Be it a music CD or a data CD"
Oh come on...........
.bin is the binary portion of a bin/cue set of files. The file format was created by the authors of CDRWIN, and can be played directly by the Videolan player available at http://www.videolan.org/vlc/
