Creator of Sig2Dat: http://www.geocities.com/vlaibb/
The sig2dat program was created by IndianaJonesAIBB. Also, it creates startfiles, but the true benefit of the program is that it gives a unique signature hash (like a fingerprint) that no other file has. This way all you have to do is report the hash information on forums and other users can create startfiles.
Users don't even have to do a search. When you open your FastTrack client (KaZaA/Grokster/kazaalite, etc.) the startfile will automatically show up in their traffic section. They should also automatically start searching and downloading but sometimes you might have to help them along by clicking on "find more sources".
A new feature that was added to the sig2dat program was something called quicklinks. This allowed users to create links like the ones you see on webpages and some forums. Once a quicklink was created users only had to click on it to automatically create a startfile. Before this feature users had to manually copy and paste the hash information into sig2dat.

(it's also bundled with the latest version of kazaalite v2.0)

If it's an *avi use the AVI Preview tool, a program which is capable of playing partially downloaded AVI movies.
It's now bundled with KaZaA Lite (v2.0 Build 2)
or available from: www.avipreview.com
You just drag-n-drop your dat file into "AVIPreview" and watch the movie! And you do not have to close KaZaA.
Preview AVI files without interruption of the download process
Uses standard DirectX framework - no additional software needed
Very simple interface
Does not change the original video file in any way
It is Free!
It is very compact and not overloaded with bunch of functions. It does not claim to be the best (most advanced) player around. It does that it claims, give you an ability to preview the content of the avi file.
For *mpg's copy the file that is downloading and paste the partial file you copied somewhere else... so, if you have a .dat file that will become an .mpg you can often times preview some of it by renaming the pasted file to .dat.mpg (or whatever with the *.mpg extension).
In the event that doesn't work, you can also try opening the pasted file with virtualdub and click the play button.
Virtualdub available from:
www.virtualdub.org OR www.vcdhelp.com
KaZaA (if not started yet) and connects to it. Then it will continiously try to "find more sources" for your download list, thus increasing your download speeds and helping you "beat" the queue.
When you right-click on an item in the download screen of KaZaA,
you can 'search for more sources'. KaZaA will then search for more users
from which it can download that file. This usually speeds up your downloads.
The FTA tool automates that for you by running alongside your FastTrack client and every few minutes it automatically searches for more sources.
FTA can be of the most benefit for those times when you are away from your computer, so KaZaA/kazaalite etc., will always be on the lookout for alternative sources.
The current version is 1.3.1 (10/21/02).
A prior version is also bundled with kazaalite v2.0
or can be downloaded separately at:
Did you download it off KaZaA?
Did it have the yellow "Altnet" symbol? ()
Does it say the artist is Sharman Networks?
If so, you can be 99% sure it is safe.
If not, use it at your own risk.
