just copy the .dat file into ur hard drive and it should work using wmp....if u want it to be mpg....change it into .mpg or.mpeg....either way it should work ..it's better than reencoding it....works for me

it's already in mpg file.....it turns into .dat file so it's compatible with dvd players but it's a mpg file in the first place before it's burned into vcd....all vcds are mpgs

i think what jasonb is saying is rename the file " whateveryourdatis.dat" to "whateveryourdatis.mpeg"

I dont know if that would work.. possible...

Ellecard mpeg player will play .dat files if they are ofcourse video lol

but recomended is vcdgear it will change it to mpg and fix the mpeg buffers if need be vcdgear and vcdgeargui can be found at
http://www.vcdgear.com/

THe vcd gear gui is easier to use can be used just drag and drop i think or just browse for the file i forget now

Both tools available at the vcdgear website tho
