Mounting a bin/cue CD image in Linux

It turns out that mounting a bin/cue CD image is not as straightforward as mounting an ISO image in Linux. So what's the easiest way out? Convert the bin/cue image into an ISO image! It's really simple. First install bchunk.

$ sudo apt-get install bchunk

bchunk is a utility that converts bin/cue images into ISO images.

Now, convert the image:

$ bchunk image.bin image.cue image.iso

Finally, once you have the ISO image, mount it.

$ sudo mount -o loop -t iso9660 image.iso mountPoint

where mountPoint is the mount point you have created.
