Hmmm...that's a problem I've never encountered. I use mine for video editing, graphic design, and looking at porn, so my sound card is only a Creative SoundBlaster Audigy -- far different from yours, I would guess!

Anyway, if you really want to try it, there are tools that will help you conver QuickTime .mov files to mpegs. Some will convert them to AVI files, which you can then use in a freeware program like TMPEGEnc (which is widely used and even recommended by some professionals) to make MPEG1 files (or MPEG2 for a limited time). I think there is even a free plug-in for TMPEGEnc that will allow you to use .mov files directly.

Now, I've yet to have the need to convert a .mov file, so I haven't used any of these. But the site I am directing you to ( is pretty good and has links to lots of freeware tools. If you are interested, follow the link and look for the apps that convert mov to avi or mpg in the Video Encoder section.
