Audacity: Free Audio Editor and Recorder can do it, but probably only one at a time, and not as a batch (which is what you'd want)

Too bad iPod can't just play OGG already --- that would save you the transcoding :(

Thank ya... Yea it'd be nice to have it done in batches, but I guess this will have to do.

I'll keep searching -- Google isn't really a help 'cause of all the iffy results, but it will kill me if I don't know a better answer, myself.

this looks like a PERL script specifically for what you want to do

ogg2mp3 (homepage)
Convert oggs to mp3s, converting ogginfo tags to id3 tags. Requires: ogg123, ogginfo, id3tool and an mp3 encoder, and nothing else. I've had a bug report that this might be limited to 48 minutes, I'd love more info on this.

but I've only seen references to using it on Linux -- so I don't know how well it would run on OSX

The easiest way would be to install the above-linked QuickTime ogg component and converting them via iTunes.

Transcoding resuslts in vastly reduced quality, mind you.

I can't believe no one has recommended this. This is perfect for all your converting and ripping needs. Have been using it for quite a while.

Ddoonie, you are the egg man. Many thanks for your astute rec; it worked a treat. One album warned me it was getting "permission errors" when sending its tracks to iTunes...but they arrived there fine, played fine, and burned to CD with no problems.

Much obliged, brother.
