There are many suggestions on the internet on how to use cue/bin files on a Mac.

Is there a native way of mounting cue or bin files and seeing them as Volumes in Finder?

Alternatively, are there any tools—in the vain of Daemon Tools on a Windows machine—that provide this functionality?

I would very much like avoid converting the files I have.

Stuffit Expander (Select StuffIt Expander Only if you want to download it from that site, dont get any adware crap) can open bin files, and from what I remember cue files are just information maps about bin files.

I forget if you can view them as Volumes, but that seems like a secondary concern, converting them is a lengthy process if you have more than a few files.

Actually, I've just found out by trying that Unarchiver can do the same (i.e. extract). Hopefully someone will be able to find out how to mount them. –  Sklivvz Apr 25 '11 at 15:37

Have you tried Control+Click (right click) on the .bin file and open with Disk Utility?

I have, Disk Utility pops out but doesn't see it. –  Sklivvz Apr 25 '11 at 15:32

I've just used Unarchiver and its extracted all the files in the .bin and i've been able to get the .wmv files that way.

You can get Daemon tools free trial for OSX to mount bin file.
