Are you on Windows or Mac? Is there a video file you can see with an extension--if so, what is it (.wmv, .mov, .avi, etc.)?

Copy that file to somewhere on your hard drive - change the extension from .dat to .mpg

Done.

Right click the file and select "open with" ... then browse your options until you find your chosen media player. That should then play the file.

Have you tried it in a dvd player? Most new players handle VCD and SVCD just fine.

To answer your PM about changing the file extension, you need to do the following:
Open the folder the file is in,
click on Tools then choose Folder Options.

Click on the "view" tab, make sure "Hide extensions for known filetypes" is UNchecked. Click apply, find your file and then rename it as you usually would - and be sure it ends .mpg

Cheers,
-James

You can play VCDs in most home DVD players - just pop it in like a normal DVD. To view it on a computer, you'll have to find a specific application that will play it like QuickVCD http://www.fwnetwork.com/description/quickvcd.html. It's free and small.

FYI, to strip files off a vcd and convert from .dat to .mpg, I would recommend downloading the free program vcdgear. It eliminates the useless info contained in the .dat file.

Cheers!
