Are there any softwares that will easily edit .bin files without the use of HEX editing.. something more like resource editors.

The bin file contains an image of a firmware, and I can open it with VLC media player and listen to some tunes it contains

Thanks.

BIN files are usually just uncompressed 1's and 0's...you need to know specifically the format its contents are stored in.

If you need to extract sounds from it, try opening it in a sound editor like cooledit pro. As you said, you can listen to some of the tunes in VLC, so the audio data is probably raw data, and can sometimes be extracted from the binary files.

If the file contains an image of a firmware for a specific device, it's extremely unlikely there is any resource editor out there that would be able to pull the audio data. An image of a firmware is really just an exact copy of the ROM/PROM/EPROM/EEPROM.

Is the bin file in question maybe an image of a rom from some arcade game or something like that?

Or is he opening an uncompressed ISO of a disc and he's just using the wrong terminology...

True. I really didn't think of that :)
And in that case, he _could_ try using Magic ISO :)

No no.. it's not and ISO of a disco lol... If it was there would be tons of programs to do that. Anyways I found a software that was specifically made to extract the resources of this firmware image.

So, thanks for trying to help.
