The Sony PlayStation 1 was Sony's first home video console, released in the 1990s. It offered a unique gaming medium that featured a compact disk. Compact disks provided better graphics and higher data storage than previous video games. These disks also opened the doors for playing backup games on the PS1 because many modern computers come with disk drives capable of writing to compact disk media. When a PS1 game is backed up, two files are created: a BIN file and a CUE file. These files are what make up the disk image file. You can burn them to a blank disk by using any supported image file burning program.
Things You'll Need
- Disk image burning software
- Blank disk
Download and install any ISO burning program that supports burning BIN/CUE files. BIN\CUE files are disk images, just like an ISO file.
Insert a blank disk into the computer's optical disk drive. Start the ISO burning program and click the "Source" button to open a new window.
Select the PS1 BIN file from the window that appears. Click the "Ok" or "Open" button near the bottom of the Explorer window to load the BIN file into the program. The CUE file that is associated with the BIN file will automatically be added to the program.
Click the "Destination" button on the ISO burning program's window and select the "Disk Drive" that the black disk is located in.
Click the "Burn" or "Start" button to burn the BIN\CUE file to the blank disk that will be used inside of the PS1. Remove the disk after the program completes.
