You could use ffmpeg for the job. Not sure if it keeps ID3 tags though.

You have a link to a little walk through on that X? or should i just google :D

google wins : ffmpeg -i flacfile.flac -acodec mp3 -ab 128 mp3file.mp3 - i can use that as a base :D will see if i can use wildcards

i just found two old programs on a disc, one is the flac gui which you need some old xp file for or it wont run and lamdropXPd :) , ah - foobar, yes i forgot that had a conversion option in it :) still wondering if i should use flac to convert them to wav first though, will run a few tests see whats what.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
