    Hi all

    I've got a set of kids cartoon VCDs that plays normally on any VCD player and PC. I have a video converter software (Movie2Go) and tried to convert them into a format that is compatible for my Nokia Phone or Sony PSP Game Console. But when I tried doing so, the converter does not recognise any media files on the VCDs. I selected "ALL FILES" under File Type and found that the VCD video data is all in ***.DAT. What does this mean? Its some kind of copyright protection? Any way out of this? Many thanks!

    .dat files are vcd files that carry more information, but I don't know if that includes CP. There are different types and some need specific decoders so google for .dat video converters and you should find something, more information if nothing else.
