I have noticed that some times my windows media player does not run .dat files. I get movies on rent the video file is in the format of .dat.It runds on my pc using WMP.But a month ago mycousin asked me to run her cd on computer which they have shooted in their office.It was not running.Why was it not supporting that file.I have noted this many times.Please tell me what could be the reason and how to solve that problem.

This problem may occur only due to 2 reasons... 1) Either you dont have latest .dat runtimes which were used for that Cd or... 2)The Cd is not properly written. Try reinstalling Windows Media Player, Otherwise try the same file in Real Media player or winamp if it works then problem is with winsows media player or the problem is with the CD
