Difference between ISO, BIN/CUE &
The term "ISO" is ostensibly an abbreviation of "ISO-9660
disc image", which is itself somewhat suspect. ISO-9660 is
a standard that defines the file system most often used on CD-ROM.
It does not define a disc image format. "ISO-9660 file system
image" would be more appropriate. It is typically good for
data files/video content. However, it is not good with Audio CDs.
BIN/CUE format was specifically developed to overcome the Audio
CDs archiving problem with ISO. In general, this format can be used
for the same content that ISO supports and has no drawbacks.
MDS is typically used for copy protected DVDs. ISO or BIN/CUE
does not have the feature of storing copy protection information
within the image file. This file usually contains information about
the position of layer break bits that helps in re-creating exact
same copy of any copy protected DVD.
To summarize, ISO is good for storing files/data/video that isn't
copy protected and is supported by almost every imaging software.
BIN/CUE is good for copying Audio CDs. And, MDS is good for making
copies of copy protected DVDs.
