I got some DAT files from the VCD, but no program on my computer supports to play this DAT file. How can convert the DAT file to my computer media player recognized MP4?

A DAT(Digital Audio Tape) was first initially developed by Sony for its DAT recorders, but later was extended for general data storage, like storing VCD data, program data, game data, email data, etc. A VCD DAT file is actually a MPEG-1 file and in some cases can be played in VCD player, DVD player, Blu-ray player and other MPEG-1 compatible players with or without renaming the .dat file extension to .mpg extension. But if you want to be more expandable to play DAT on iPhone, iPad, iPod, Android, Windows Media Player, QuickTime, PSP, Roku, Zune, all smart TVs, etc or you want to edit DAT file on various video editing programs, you need to convert the DAT file to widely used MP4 format or other formats.
