ogg to mp3 format program recommendation

I would not recomment do transfer anything from one lossy format to another
lossy format. The result will always be even lossier.

Apart from that, ffmpeg should do the trick, shouldn't it?

Look for it in with Synaptics.

When you installed it, open a console, cd to a folder with ogg files, then

ffmpeg -i *.ogg *.mp3

This converts them all in one easy command.

Of course you can convert them one by one:

ffmpeg -i OldName.ogg NewName.mp3


ffmpeg -i MySong.ogg MySong.mp3

The original ogg files will not be deleted. After the command, you will have
your ogg files and yout mp3 files.

Maybe you can do like this too, but I didn't try it myself:

mkdir ConvertedSongs
ffmpeg -i *.ogg ConvertedSongs/*.mp3
