Problem exporting time formatted data from Access 2010 to Excel 2010

Hi all. I'm having a problem exporting an Access 2010 query to Excel. The Access query contains a number of text and numeric fields which export with no issues. However, one of the fields is in a time format ([nn]:ss) which, when exported to Excel, fails to transfer the values.

The database relates to my music collection, and as such requires time fields for things such as album length and track duration. As an example of the problem, if I have a track that is 3 minutes 50 seconds in duration, this obviously appears in both the source table and all associated queries as 03:50. I have set up a specialist query to export relevant data to Excel, including track times. When I export this query to Excel, the track time should also read, per the example, 03:50 or 3:50. Instead, every entry invariably reads 00:00.

Is there any way I can correct this WITHOUT reverting the Access data field to a standard decimal figure?

Thanks in advance.
