Fix MP3 files that iTunes thinks are QuickTime movies

This is pretty much a repeat of this hint, isn't it?

The problem is due to the type/creator codes, and for me it happens when I've saved an MP3 file from Safari through the Quicktime plugin that Safari uses to preview audio files.

Yes, just strip the TYPE and CREATOR...

metadata and iTunes will now think it's an mp3 file.
Also, you will now be able to play the file through Airport.

The problem isn't always only due to type/creator code problems. If the data has been saved inside a QuickTime .mov wrapper instead of an MPEG-1 stream, changing type/creator codes won't help.
