Ok guys, a whole lot of you are asking what do to with the various files you download using eMule, so I?m writing up this mini file-extension summary. This will cover some of the more common file-types that Windows does not recognize by default.

So, lets get started shall we!

1.).BIN, these are binary image files of CD?s, usually accompanied by a .cue file that will be covered later in this guide. These can be manipulated by many different programs. My favorite way to handle these is to simply use a program like Alcohol 120% or Daemon Tools. Using these tools you can mount the images using ?Virtual? drives, that means you can use them as if they were CD?s w/o burning it to a CD at all. Although the easiest and most popular way to handle these files is burning them onto a CD, I don?t suggest burning the file directly, I would advise you to burn the .cue file, as it actually shirnks the size of the file when burnt, and is handled by popular burning software, such as Ahead Nero. If you have downloaed a film in .bin format, a media player called VideoLan for Windows can play these files.

2.).CUE, these little guys are typically very small in size, <1kB. And simply provide applications with specs pertaining to how the file is laid out on disk. The files they provide this information for are the .bin files. Because they provide programs with how the image is to be laid out on disk, they tend to make the file small enough to fit onto a CD, which is why I say everyone should download the .cue file if they are downloading a .bin image. They can be burned by programs such as Nero or just about any other burning software. As well as mounted using Alcohol 120% or Daemon Tools.

3.).ZIP, these are compressed archives of files, many times people will compress image files, to make transfers go faster, because the file size is smaller. Yes, windows XP does recognize these by default, but windows sucks at everything :P . Popular extracting tools are WinAce, WinRAR, WinZip

4.).RAR, these are the same idea as zip files, and can be read by WinRAR and WinAce.

5.).ISO, Disk image files, can be mounted or burned using nero, Alcohol 120%, or Daemon Tools.

6.)CloneCD Sub-section *Credit goes to SirXerxes and Idiot for this*
The three files written (with the ending *.CCD, *.IMG and *.SUB) are
.CCD - The CloneCD control file. It contains information about the logical structure of the CD. The CCD file is an ASCII text file. Experienced users may want to modify it.
.IMG - Image, the main channel data of all tracks of the CD
.SUB - Sub Channel Data, the sub channel data of all tracks of the CD
The three files must be in the same directory. They must have the same "front" name, e.g. Clone CD Image.ccd, CloneCD Image.img and Clone CD Image.sub.

7.).NFO, windows trys to open these files incorrectly by default, they can be viewed by choosing to open them in notepad/wordpad. They usually contain information about the file you have downloaded.

8.).ACE, Just like ZIPs and RARs, its an archive, use WinAce. (Thanks SirXerxes)

9.).OGG audio and .OGM video files can be opened with a little help of OGGDS (Thanks killmaus)

10.) .APE can be opened via MonkeysAudio (Thanks killmaus)

11.).MPC can be opened via MusePack (Thanks killmaus)


others: If you did not found the file-extention you are loocking for, go to this database:http://filext.com. It will tell you known formats to an entered file extention!

looks good :thumbup:

additions:
1) if you mention "Popular extracting tools are WinAce, WinRAR, WinZip", it may be good to also add winace's extension
2) actually, the *.ccd is not the image, its the *.img, the *.ccd is only a textfile with instructions, like the *.cue

Clone CD
The three files written (with the ending *.CCD, *.IMG and *.SUB) are
  • CCD - The CloneCD control file. It contains information about the logical structure of the CD.
    The CCD file is an ASCII text file. Experienced users may want to modify it.
  • IMG - Image, the main channel data of all tracks of the CD
  • SUB - Sub Channel Data, the sub channel data of all tracks of the CD
The three files must be in the same directory. They must have the same "front" name, e.g. Clone CD Image.ccd, CloneCD Image.img and Clone CD Image.sub.

*.APE can be opened via: Monkey's audio

*.OGG audio and *.OGM video files can be opened with a little help of :OGGDS

Also you can use: Gspot to find out if you have the proper CODEC installed to watch that educational video you just DL'ed

And most of the time you can use this: Technological Marvel to find what you're searching for....

@ SuPaSnAcK

I hope you are kidding! Search the filext.com site for the answer! :lol:

@ Waynebike

Congratulations with the sticky! Nice one! :+1:
If the thread gets to messy ask one of the devs or admins to clean it up for you! :)

One suggestion though. Maybe add the .nrg extension -> Nero's image extension! :-k Sorry for not PM'ing you about it! :cry:

The website isn't a bible... I was asking for some codec or something like that to open the file in Winamp, for example. <_<

I seriously doubt that's what you are looking for, but it's worth a try.

Here's one for you. I have a file with the extension ".Movie" and my burning software does not recognise it, I have even tried Nero, and nothing. Any ideas on what I need to get this recognised by either Roxio(preferable) or Nero(last resort)?

never heard of .movie before, but filext.com comes up with it being a quicktive movie. i think its viewing it as a .mov file. what are you trying to use the software to do, make like a vcd or something? nero recognizes any file, if you burning it to a data disk. but if its in another format, especially with vcd's they are picky about file formats. look for somekind of file converter, like a .movie to .mpeg or something (dont know if one exists)

If you have TMPEGENC you can turn the *.mov file into *.mpeg format you just need a plugin. Or you can use mov2avi. You can find them using : :google:
