    From Where???
    it would depend what type of .dat file it is. there was a time in gaming when all types of custom files were named .dat. i've seen data, levels, sound, video, etc. so you'll need to know what it is to know how to proceed. simple levels in games which are .dat files can often be opened with notepad, assuming they are unencrypted. audio .dat files can be opened in a variety of applications (winamp, cooledit pro, etc).

    As said, if it's a file you extracted from a game, it can basically be anything.
    You might want to google it with the name of the game next to it and hope you're lucky.
    Also try here and if you don't find anything but you're really motivated, why not check this out.
