mplayer can view dat files.

but then it's not a case of playing .dat files.. it's a case of play a vcd correcty....

mplayer vcd://1

and *NOT*

mplayer /mnt/cdrom/blah.dat

And if the vcd is really a cd start mplayer with "gmplayer" (with gui that is) and click open, there you can choose for file, location, dvd and vcd as well

If your vcd doesn' t open just correct the path in the preferences. You don' t even have to mount the cd
