    I'm pasting the url of the site I got as my first google result. You can do a bit more googling and find a freeware, but for now - http://www.aoamedia.com/Convert_DAT_to_MPEG.htm
    That's the tutorial but it has the link to the trial version of the software. Use that if you want.

    Use ISO buster It is a freeware.Rightclick on .datfile,select "extract but filter only m2f2 mpeg frames".Select new file name ,save in a different location with .mpeg extension.

    use virtual dub . Also you may install k-lite codec pack to install all the codecs. you can do almost anything with this open source software.
