    Hello,

    I have Quicktime files from 2004 and they are in .mov format. When I try to play them QT will open up and I get a loading bar and it says "converting". I am not sure what is being converted? It takes about 5 min or more. Other apps running on my computer starts to act as if they are in slow motion.

    When its done the file plays perfectly fine. When I try to close it, it says if I want to save the converted file. So I chose yes. I got an 8GB FILE!! The original file is only 117mb and is about 30 min long.

    Any one know whats going on here?

    Yes, it's QT v10 that's the problem. Use QT7 if you still have it.
