Never opening an MOV with FCP

Hey all,

I never ever, for any reason want my OS to open FCP when I double click on an MOV file... I always want it to open in Quicktime. I've done what I feel I need to to accomplish this "Open with..." "Always use this application" --- but my OS persists in taking what it considers to be a "Final Cut Pro Movie File" and opening FCP when I double click it, even though it's an MOV.

Anyone know how I can fix this?

Thanks in advance.

This worked for me in Snow Leopard:

Select a Quicktime .mov file in the finder. Then select:

COMMAND-I or choose CHOOSE GET INFO

drop down the the arrow CHANGE OPEN WITH to Quicktime 7 (by default it now lives in Applications > Utilities, so choose "Other" if it doesn't show up by default in the list)

CLICK CHANGE ALL button.

Voila - all your .mov are now re-associated with QT7
