How to change a media.bin file to a regular .bin file.

This is a new one for me. I downloaded a zip file that I need to rollback a media player to it original firmware. I know how to do it using a usb drive. The problem is that the .bin file I need access to, when it is extracted from the zip file is a media file (VLC). On its properties page it is listed as:VLC media file (.bin) (.bin) and I need it to be a regular .bin file. Thanks

Don't concern yourself with what the properties page says. That information is from the extension (.bin) that VLC has set an associations to. It is only based upon the extension of the file, nothing more.

Thanks, that was the same answer I just got from the person that has the site that I downloaded the file from. The problem is, I asked it 2 days ago.
