I REALLY need to convert mpg files to mov files cause I need to use then with iMovie and FCP.
MOV is a file container. It can contain an valid combination of audio, video, text, 'Tween, Chapter, etc. data. What compression format do you want to edit in natively with iMovie or FCP?
But when I convert mpg to mov, the files are without sound.
The MPG file container normally contains audio and video data multiplexed as interspersed blocks of data in a single stream to provide spatial synchronization of audio and video. QT is based on parallel tracks of audio and video synchronized temporally. Since QT can only demultiplex and convert one track of data, it is programed to convert the video and leaves the audio out of the new file. As was previously indicated, if you wish to retain audio, you will have to use an MPEG based application. MPEG Streamclip is free and considered by most QT users to be both reliable and a standard by which other such apps are judged.
When I use that I got a file just with sound and no image. What I supposed to do?
Once again we return to the primary question of what compression format you want to edit in natively in iMovie or FCP. Most people choose DV/DV or AIC/Uncompressed but other options include Photo JPEG, Motion JPEG, MPEG-4, or H.264 with any edit compatible audio compression format. As an FCP, pro codecs are also available depending on your specific needs or wants. The compression codecs you wish to use will, in the end, determine which MPEG Streamclip conversion option you select and what settings are available.2.66GHz 17" MBP 2.0GHz 3GB G5/533MHz 384MB G4 DeskTop/400MHz 384MB G4 Ti PB, Mac OS X (10.6.6), 60GB 5G iPod, 4GB iPhone, Nikon D-70, Nikon CoolPix 990, Sony HDR-HC3

You must also have the Apple mpeg2 plugin :
NOTE: The QT MPEG-2 Playback component is only required if the MPG file contains "muxed" MPEG-2 video content. It is not required if the MPG file contains MPEG-1 video and will not work at all if the MPG file contains H.264 video. In addition, MP3 audio only files can be wrapped in an MPG container. Since you did not mention what "no image" meant, It is difficult to tell what kind of source content you are dealing with here. (I.e., is the video display absent with only an audio progress bar present or is the screen a solid black (in QT Player) or is the screen a solid white (in MPEG Streamclip), etc.?)2.66GHz 17" MBP 2.0GHz 3GB G5/533MHz 384MB G4 DeskTop/400MHz 384MB G4 Ti PB, Mac OS X (10.6.6), 60GB 5G iPod, 4GB iPhone, Nikon D-70, Nikon CoolPix 990, Sony HDR-HC3

You have given no information about your video files. It sounds like they are multiplexed aka "muxed." In these, the audio and video are combined into a single track. Use iMedia Converter Deluxe to demux the video and audio into separate tracks.
