    I have a directory of music that I want to import into iTunes so I can stick it on my iPhone. I am switching from Linux to Mac OS X, so a bunch of my music is encoded in OGG Vorbis. I am looking for a way to automatically go through the directory (recursively), find all the OGG files, convert them to MP3, and move the OGG files elsewhere without deleting them.

    Recursively means that I have folders inside of folders inside of folders, etc. About 4 or 5 nested directories at the most. Also, there are some MP3s but most of it is OGG, so I'd like it to leave the MP3s alone.

    Can somebody help me? :eek:

    P.S. - I understand that transcoding from one lossy format to another lowers the quality, but the OGG encoded songs are higher quality than I need anyway, so I won't be able to tell the difference.

    Also: Under my name, it's switched from "macrumors regular" to "macrumors 6502" ... what does that mean? :confused:

    EDIT: Perfect! EXACTLY what I wanted.
