why can't windows media player open .dat file?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread

Thanks for the forum. I got several video cds recently, but can not view them because windows media player won't recognize the format. Anybody had same problem before?

Thanks a lot.

Make sure you have active movie installed, if you don't get one! configure it so they can play .dat extention
