    A .dat file is simply an incomplete download.

    Do you know what sort of file it will be when it has finished downloading? To preview it, you could try using AVIPreview or VideoLan, but if neither of these will work you'll have to wait until it has finished downloading.

    I've noticed that DivX files (unlike mpegs or older AVIs) are only 'whole' when they are complete, so won't display until the full file is downloaded.
