Solution 1

This is the example of reading serialized custom object reding from .DAT file

ObjectToSerialize objectToSerialize;
      Stream stream = File.Open(filename, FileMode.Open);
      BinaryFormatter bFormatter = new BinaryFormatter();
      objectToSerialize = (ObjectToSerialize)bFormatter.Deserialize(stream);
      return objectToSerialize;

You could use 'String' Instead of 'ObjectToSerialize' ( because your .DAT contains string rather then custom object)
