This is probably irreverent here but, from my experience .bin and .cue files 
make up a karaoke song. I make my own karaoke discs and the .bin and .cue 
files are needed to make the disk work correctly. I think the .bin file holds 
the music, and all the data to tell the music where to find the .cue file.
