i have an image i want to burn, but it is a .dat file not an .iso, .cue, or .bin.
usually i use nero to burn those types and this one has got me stumped. any ideas?

Are you sure it is an image file? If so then it should have come with a .toc. Think of the toc as a cue and the dat as a BIN.

Could also be that someone just copied the dat from a VCD, if so then just create a VCD out of it with Nero, which I don't think cares that the DAT would have a rif header, if it does, use VCDGear, DAT2File, etc. to remove it and create a regular mpg.

CD, your assumption on Nero is indeed correct. Infact I didn't realise anything about a rif header until I saw something posted here as I had only used Nero at that point.
