Windows 7 - Help: how to play DAT file

Asked By sothun thay on 09-Mar-09 01:08 AM
Hello Everyone,

I have copied DAT file from my VCD and placed them in my local hard drive. I
am wondering how do I play them via Windows Media Center extender (LinkSys

FYI, I have created a hardlink MPEG file points to the original DAT file
using "fsutil.exe" command; but still I could not play.

Your advice would be much appreciated.

WMC doesnt support dat files so you need a conversion program. Take a look
