Joining Cue files

posted in Encoding

Does anyone know if it’s possible to join 2 cue files? I want to use DVD Encrypter to burn the dvd. reply

Nah, it’s not possible. .cue files are just instructions, telling the DVD/CD burner how to burn files like .bin. Having 2 means you’ve got two files, that need to be physically joined before burning. You won’t need any .cue file after that. There’s nothing overly complex about .cue files. (You can open them with notepad and see the small amount of text/instructions, that’s all it is).

I’m going to assume that you’ve got some sort of video content.

Now, what you need to do is Extract the MPEG1 or MPEG2 files from the .bin files that you’ve got. Use VCDGear to do this:

From there you can then use the software that came with your DVD burner to author the DVD. It should accept .MPG ((VCD)MPEG1 or (SVCD)MPEG2), but it will probably have to re-encode the files to make them fully compliant. The software might have .MPG joining capabilites also, which you could use to join the your files together.

One other piece of software that you may like to try out is TMPGEnc ( You can join .MPG using this, although there are certain A/V issues that can crop up.

It will all depend on your software as to how long it’ll take and what sort of quality you’ll get in the end.

Also, the file is going to increase in size, so it becomes fully DVD compliant. In the end the file may not fit onto a regular 4.7GB DVDR/RW. reply
