Download Daimon Tools, it's a tool used to mount Bin and Cue files. There's always a chance that the Cue file might have been corrupted and an error message saying something about the Cue spread sheet will pop up. If this happens there's nothing more you can do. If you have any problems using Daimon tools, let me know.

its daemon, and its a very good program cuz i use it myself. very practical user interface and very easy to understand.

Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.

You don't need the .cue files, Daemon Tools is capable of running .bin files directly.

And if you for some reason really want those .cue files you can write you own in notepad. A typical PC CD-ROM .cue file looks like this:

FILE "image-name.BIN" BINARY
TRACK 01 MODE1/2352
INDEX 01 00:00:00

"image-name.BIN" being the name of the .bin file (IWDII.BIN, CIV3.BIN and so on...)
