Convert MP3 to MOV ?

I need to convert some files from MP3 to MOV

Odd, I know.  We have a series of video seminars that are already MOV.  There are a couple of conference calls that are MP3.  To get them all into one "show" grouping for storage on people's iPhones, they all need to be in MOV format.... we can't add MP3 files in - it separates the music and video into separate categories.

I'm looking for easy free tools to do this.  I don't have to do many, but I've looked at 20 programs and they're going from MOV to MP3, not the other way.

And I'm running windows

Thanks

You may try this:  SUPER © Simplified Universal Player Encoder & Renderer

=============
SUPER © does NOT require any additional external codec to
   be installed, absolutely nothing. Necessary codecs are built in!
#  MOV converter Convert any supported input file to MOV. Convert MOV files to any other format.
The rendered MOV files are created using a wide variety of video codecs H.264/MPEG-4/DivX/XviD/H.263... together
with AAC/AMR/wav... audio. They are fully playable on QuickTime7.

Thank you - worked PERFECTLY

If anyone else tries this (or I forget how I did it & look it up here in the future), when you run the app:

1) Choose output container = MOV
2) Chose "Disable Video"
3) Choose "Stream Copy" (just drops the audio in there without re-encoding)
4) Drag & drop the files to be converted
5) Hit "Encode"

30 seconds later, good to go.

Thanks jpg526 !

**************** UPDATE ****************

Let me correct what I commented above.  jpg's information was spot on ... my instructions were not.

When I did the above, iTunes would not recognize the file as a movie and still recognized it was a music file, even though it had been re-encoded as a movie.

To do it "right" I followed the above steps, except:
2) Do NOT disable video.  It will encode with a picture of text saying there is no video stream
3) Do NOT choose "Stream Copy"

Now, instead of taking 10 seconds to encode a 30MB mp3 file it took about 30 minutes.  Painfully slow.  But it did work perfectly with these updated settings.
