There is a recently created Yahoo group for discussion of
member, Wayne Hoxsie, has created a new software tool called
WinDAT, which you can find in the groups file section.
I never got past the demo stage with VDAT. Didn't wnat to
pay the $100 for the full version, and I found a free
program called DAT2WAV, which I had limited success with,
after a painful configuration process. Wayne's tool seems to
work as well or better than DAT2WAV, and when I have some
time eventually, I'm going to experiment with it some more.
