Try VLC Media Player 1.1.0. The new player version fixes the broken .avi files

You need to tell us what is the source of the video's and then I can suggest a suitable option.

You will need to extract, filter & repair and then reencode.

Thanks for the reply mate. Have downloaded VCD Gear, but facing a bit trouble using it. Can you please let me know how to repair and old (.DAT) file with this.

Have downloaded VLC 1.1.0. but not able to get the video fixed. Not sure if there is any specific way for doing that.

A .dat is actually an MPEG1 format used in VCD's.

You can use ISObuster to extract .DAT to a pure MPEG1 format, if it has broken frames, it will skip them ofcourse but the rest will continue.

Now you can again use this MPEG1 file to convert it into an ISO image using VCDgear and burn using Imgburn. All are available free.

if you want to explore more into video quality correction, removing the grains, making picture soft or sharp. Post some screenshots as you see them now and I can advise if its worth the effort of reencoding and using filters etc or not. (we will have to move to more expert levels here then)

Why don't you re-encode the video to a more popular format ? I doubt if you'll find many tools that support DAT.

@anku94, I have tried to convert it to other formats but the file seems to be corrupted or damaged due to which the converter is also unable to change the format. FYI, I used Xilisoft Ultimate Video converter for the same. If you have any good converter which can do the trick, then please suggest.

Try using Total Video Converter. It's not the best tool out there, but I've found it reads all kinds of damaged files. It has got a player as well, which is good at reading damaged media as well.

Hi ,

I have tried two softwares which converts the .dat file ( not sure about the damaged .dat files )

1. Super Video ( freeware ) - converts .dat to any format
SUPER

2. DVD Flick ( freeware ) - converts .dat to DVD format
DVD Flick
