.dat file copied from other CD is not running in SONY music System

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread

I have copied some of the .dat files avilable in my computer to CD . When I try to run in my SONY music system, it displays "Can not Play".

MP3 files copied in the CDs are running fine in the music system.

Can any one help me out

This is not going to work. Your Sony music probably doesn't support VCD, which is a video format. Copying the DAT files isn't going to work any better than if you put the disc in an audio CD player. Assuming the Sony does support VCD, it won't work because VCD format requires other files to be present to explain how the disc is put together and simply copying the DAT files doesn't provide all the information needed to play them.
