I have a bunch of dat files. I'm using VirtualDub to turn them into jpg's.
I over 200 dat files. I can't highlight them all when I "Open video file..." and VD is not opening sequential files.
Is there a way to batch?
I took a quick look at VirtualDubMod, it doesn't seem to support jpg's, so I didn't continue figuring out what's diff about it.

Doesn't Virtualdub open them all if they are named like that (item0001.dat,item0002.dat). Just be sure to select the Automatically load linked segments in the file->open window.
And what kind of .dat files do you have? I can only think of VCD mpeg1 .dat files and it should work fine in tmpgenc. Try select open all files(*.*) or batch convert all .dat files to mpg with vcdgear.
Not sure why mine isn't doing it. VD doesn't provide any error messages either. Can only load one at a time.
The DVD spec supports MPEG 1 video from VCD but not the audio (though many players will play the MP2 audio). So don't extract images, just remux into an MPG container and author. Mpg2Cut2 can import multiple DAT files (though it may complain, and getting 200 files in the right order might be a problem), then save as MPG. VirtualDub's auto append only works with AVI files.
It looks like other programs have problems reading appended file output from Mpg2Cut2 -- they only see the first video.
