    Probably using some sound codec you don't have. Find out what codec it uses and see if you can get it.

    Okay, this is really over simplified and not exactly accurate but you can think of it like a language. Your computer doesn't know how to speak a certain language so you need to go get it a book so it can learn how to read it.

    I'd ask your PC friend to tell you want codec it is using and then search the internet to see if it is available for mac.

    If your on a mac make sure you install perian, this will allow QT to play almost every file.
