Just extract them all at the same time using winrar. After that, let me know what files they are, they might be iso images if so, then I have a great guide on how to use a virtual drive.

You can use MagicIso to convert .bin's to .iso. Then once you have the .iso you can either mount it with Daemon Tools or burn it to a cd/dvd with somthing like Nero.

You don't need to convert them into iso's if there are .cue files you can open them with Daemon tools. I mean you can still convert them into iso's but Daemon Tools would still install /play the game with .cue....you little torrent monkey.

There are two options here... As people have already said.

1) Burn the bin and cue files with Nero (assuming there is one, since a bin file is always acompanied by a cue file)
2) Mount them as a Virtual Drive with Daemon Tools.
