Default quicktime help

i got a training cd for flashmx, and when i try to open up any of the mov files it says:

Couldn't open the file "name of file.mov" because it is not a file that quictime understands.

i have other training cds from other mov files on my computer and they work fine, anyone know how to fix this problem

thanks

What version of QT do you have? It is possible that yo jst need to redownload QT to get the newest version which is 6.3 or 6.0.3 or something. Try it then. If it still doesn't work, it may be the CD. I had an informational CD about the anatomy of humans a while back that used QT, but could never get it to work for some reason dispite the fact that I had the latest vesion of it.
