How to open DATATYPE files

Did your computer fail to open a DATATYPE file? We explain what DATATYPE files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your files.

What is a DATATYPE file?

DATATYPE files are Amiga Datatype files, which you can read more about below.

The DATATYPE file extension indicates to your device which app can open the file. However, different apps may use the same file extension for different types of data. So a DATATYPE opener may not be able to open all kinds of DATATYPE files. In this case, though, we only know of one specific use.
