Fix MP3 files that iTunes thinks are QuickTime movies
Authored by: Brian Kendig on Dec 12, '06 11:03:23PM

I've been told that another, simpler, solution to the problem is to select the track in iTunes then select 'Convert Selection to MP3' (or AAC, if that's the default format you have set in iTunes) from the 'Advanced' menu.

The problem isn't merely type/creator codes; it's caused by the audio being encapsulated in a movie file wrapper for some reason. The movie wrapped has to be stripped off for iTunes to recognize the file as audio.
