Uncheck "hide extentions for known file types" in folder options > view

is that a bitcomet file? if it is with that extension then it probably isnt finished downloading or its corrupted. u probably wont b able to open it if im right with any media player except maybe something like avi preview or i dont remember if bitcomet has a media player in it to let u preview imcompletes and just renaming to avi i doubt will work either unless its finished and just didnt get renamed for some reason
