    Use Nero or any other CD/DVD burning app to burn them onto a disc.

    The file with the extension '.bin' is a binary image of the cd/dvd, the file with the '.cue' extension is a 'cuesheet' and contains information about the format of the binary image. Although some applications can do without the cuesheet most applications require it to burn the image, so you should keep both of them. You can burn it with the free application ImgBurn.

    This is legal software, right?

    Burning choices and ?

    What software are you useing ? Did it come with the burner ?
    Only use this.
    If you just want to back up this file,choose "data disk"
    I doubt it can be playable till copied to a hard drive.

    1. Right click on the image and select properties, if the image is bigger than 730MiB it's probably a DVD image. If not then it's probably a CD image.
    2. Put the correct media in the burner.
    3. Open the cuesheet in ImgBurn, select the right speed and burn it.

    It really is as simple as that.

    No. The '.bin' is the image, but you still need the '.cue' to burn the image. If you don't want to burn it to a cd/dvd you can also run it from your harddrive using emulation software like DaemonTools.
