Question How can I open a .dat game file?

Hi there!

I've just seen that in the data folder of "LEGO Star Wars", there is a sound effects file named "sfx.dat".
I'm actually building a SW sound FXs section, and I'd really like to open that .dat file.
How can I do?

Thanks

Like all problems in life, this one can be solved with a text editor such as notepad.

I've tried to open it with NotePad, which tells me that the file is too big, and with WordPad which give me a text file with understandable content.

In fact, I don't understand the relation between a data file with sound files in it, and a text editor...

edit : So, someone can explain me, in detail, how I can open that file with a text editor, please? I really need those sounds...
Thanks

Try searching google for information on .dat files. I don't know about .dat files, sorry.
