    Dude do you know what a .bat file is?

    if not then i suggest you delete it :D

    ok now for the real awnser, i don't think there is a WAY to convert a .bat to .avi since .bat(ch) files are not even in the same category and probably :)D) will not even have the same data.

    ohhh than changes a LOT

    .dat are usually SVCDs you probably could see it just renamed it to .avi and see it on WMP i got no idea how to convert it to DIVX since i am not really into movie swaping :D

    but it needs to finish the download

    actually every file you download on kazaa is a .dat file while downloading kazaa convets or decode (wathever) it to the right file but I don't wqnt to download the whole file +/- 700 mb to find out it's not the right movie

  8. that xxx.dat file is a movie file that u r currently downloading right? and u want to take a look at it b4 u download the rest of it? if yes then u'll have to copy that file to another folder, then just rename xxx.dat > xxx.avi then use divxfix to rebuild index, make sure to check keep original and cut out bad parts, that will make u xxx.avi.divxfix where u just delete the .divxfix part and u can watch that movie. it can take some time to fix it though

    if they are avi's.. .and only half downloaded.. they won't work... haven't got time to expalin.. or i would have :

    e-mail me: mdsalih@xp-erience.org and i will send you a link for a program which will fix half downloaded avi's...

    on the other hand if they are mpgs... just rename and they will work... half downloaded - whatever...
