What particular game might this be occuring in? I'm willing to bet that the sound that plays during MDEC playback is actually CDDA-type audio, which isn't included when you rip an ISO.
>how do weh ripped it together with the BIN ???
Do you mean an ISO that has the extention .bin or a file of the .bin format? The reason .bin exists is to address the "shortcomings" of ISOs*, namely the ability to extract audio and non-ISO compliant sessions burned onto a CD. My best guess would be that you should attempt to copy the CD to a .bin file (using something like CDRWin) and play it with the .bin "CD Rom" plugin. Given that I've never tried this, I haven't any idea if that'd solve your problem.

Of course, if you're looking for a more low tech solution, you could always find a nearby CD player and play the CDDA audio over it while viewing the game. It's not pretty, but it'd work.

* - I don't really see the file format's inability to store audio as all that big a problem, seeing as how 1) we already have standards for audio files and 2) ISO was created with the knowledge it's only to be used for data.
