Converting DAT extension files

I have a number of music videos that are in .dat format that I cannot play.
Is there a program that will convert them to .wmv or .mpeg format?

Regards

have these been downloaded ? I only ask as when such files are downloaded they are names as dat files until completed, then renamed to mpeg or whatever. I would have a stab at saying these files are not complete. You can try renaming the dat bit to wmv or mpeg and try running them.

Have you tried changing the file extention to .mpeg or .wmv. I don't know if it will work but I have changed .dat to .txt in the past with "some" success.
