    In WMP go to Tools > Options > file types and see if midi is checked. You may need to download midi codex.

    I thnik Winamp will play most .mid files "out of the box"

    Windows media player (and other players) will play video & audio .dat files providing you have the correct codecs installed. The trick is you need to tell windows to use the player to play the dat file. Right click the file and select "open with" option is one way of doing this.
