dat seems like a rather generic file extension. We need more information about the files you're trying to play if you expect a good answer. Copy one of the files into your home directory (/home/yourname), open a terminal, and type

file <insert dat filename here><TAB>

e.g.

file myfile.dat

and post the output here. That should say what exactly the files do contain.
