    Have you tried renaming the extension to a video format (mpg, avi, etc)? I might be wrong, but don't VCD disks have the video in .dat format? By the way, did you ask your friend what to do with it?

    Update: Yeah, you might want to download a VCD player and see if that will play the .dat file.

    Windows Media Player (8 and 9) should pick up .dat files automatically.

    Like Glaanieboy said, just open the file with WMP 8 or WMP 9.
