About the BIN file type:

Invalid file associations could be the result of underlying issues within your Windows PC. It is highly recommended to scan your PC for invalid registry entries, unused processes and other slowdown issues.

The BIN file extension is employed by a number of programs that range from image disk programs to data storage. The most typical definition of the file extension BIN is associated to Nero Burning ROM, a disk imaging software application. The said file extension is an archive file that contains complete data on the structure and content of optical storage devices such as DVDs and CDs and could also be employed using hard disk drives. The BIN file is a clone of a disk in the binary format and it contains all the pieces of stored data found in the original disc which can then be utilized for various purposes. The pieces of binary information stored in the file with the .bin file extension include folders, files, boot loaders, data, and volume attributes that had been contained in the original file.

Because the size of the file with the BIN file extension is much bigger than the original weight of the whole disc content, technology has come up with the .iso format that is smaller than the .bin file but is capable of containing as much data as the .bin file. When the Nero Burning ROM is employed in copying a disc's content onto a computer's disk drive, it creates a file with the BIN file extension and the data is imported from the disc into the disk drive.
