    Hello guys,
    Can any one tell me how to convert a .dat file to divx format.
    i have heard that a whole film can be compressed into a cd with this format, is it true.If yes, please tell me the softwares that can be used. I would prefer freewares.
    thanks in advance.

    Use Dr.DivX to do it.Go to http://www.divx.com.
    It is true,but it can't play on your VCD Players,can play only on comp.

    search the forum for this
    sheesh
    anyways dat is a vcd file
    means it came from A CD ... as in ONE cd
    so i guess u mean u want the whole 2 cd on 1 cd right ?
    well anyways ... first ull need to merge the files
    then u can convert them to divx using dr. divx .. or many other softwares available
    and ywah like bharat said u can play it in normal players. .. not even dvd players
    so its pretty useless unless u wanna give it to someone ...
    and then too its easier to make copies of the 2 cds

    dr divx is damn good for converting files to divx format, but it aint free :cry:

    for freeware go for virtualdub....its not as great as dr divx but its free!

    Umm, rather than joinin the dat and then converting, make two avis and join them, I somehow feel avi's join faster.

    A dat is a mpg, so u need a mpg to avi program.

    Virtual dub is pretty good.

    I have downloaded Dr.divX and I converted 4 DAT files to DivX(*.avi).But those 4 files are not clear. The Quality is very vast. Is there any setting to overcome from these problem.

    the quality does get affected in divx
    but it shud not be very disturbing
    in 'choose output' -> 'encode the divx video into'
    choose 'high quality'
    its also possible that your screen resolution is set at low values
    just before encode, go to 'modify settings'
    move the resize tab to max
    that shud help
