=== Mounting a CUE/BIN-Pair as volume ===
If the game plays additionals music tracks from the cd ([http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mixed_Mode_CD mixed mode]), you can still mount it as an image file. Since ISO can only contain pure data, the image has to be in the [[Cuesheet|CUE/BIN format]]. You mount it with
<code><pre>Z:\>IMGMOUNT E C:\Images\MyImage.cue -t iso</pre></code>
The BIN-file has to be in the same folder as the CUE-file. It is also possible to use a cuescheet in combination with an ISO and [[Cuesheet|compressed audio tracks]] in OGG or MP3 format.
