Nope. Toast can't even handle simple files like .FLV
In fact you need to download a plugin called Perian. It allows the conversion of many formats, also allows you to play many formats in quicktime. Try download it, run it. It will sit in your PREFs, and tell me if you can now convert the .dat file.
