I have an old multibit wallet.dat file that open open. When I upload it into electrum it says:

'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xbe in position 54: ordinal not in range(128)

When I upload it into multibit class it says

Unable to load wallet "/Users/myname/Desktop/General Folders/Grouped Folders Coins/uncle wallet backup/1wallet.dat" or backups. See help on "Wallet Backups" for more details.
The error was "com.google.bitcoin.store.UnreadableWalletException Could not parse input stream to protobuf".
Could not load the wallet file "/Users/myname/Desktop/General Folders/Grouped Folders Coins/uncle wallet backup/1wallet.dat".
The error message was "null"

I think I have some bitcoins inside and I tried so many different solutions but none worked. I don't have my private key and I don't have a seed. So it's this wallet or nothing I guess  Sad. Does anyone know how to solve this? Thank you.

Only Bitcoin Core ever makes a file called wallet.dat. Try opening the wallet in Bitcoin Core.

The wallet file will only open in the software that made it. Wallet files are not compatible across clients.
