Need a suggestion for a good audio conversion utility.
Here's my problem: I archive all my Audio CDs to lossless data, with the FLAC Codec.
I just got a very small MP3 player for the kids (yeah, right ), actually it looks more like a memory flash stick (64MB),
http://www.wallgreens.com/store/prod...ush&navCount=0
and it plays MP3 and WMA.
The problem is that I tried using CDex for conversion, and it doesn't open FLAC files.
Not like OggDrop, where I can select all FLAC files, and drop them into OggDrop.
So I'm looking for a utility that will basically let me open the FLAC files and encode the batch to WMA.

BTW, the Windows Media Encoder version 9 does a pretty damn good job at 64Kbps
I compared the audio to an Ogg Vorbis at the same bitrate, and I can't really tell the difference.
Below 64Kbps, Vorbis has an edge, but at ~64Kbps, I think both encoders are a match.

Thanks,

Hi bigggt,

No, not lately. I'll read their site in a few minutes.
I'm looking for a utility that I can select multiple files, and encode them all.
I can do this easily with CDex, but it can only open MP3s and other formats. But not FLAC files.

DbPowerAmp is a tool box that includes DbPowerAmp Music Converter.
This tool works on a folder containing all the sources (that can be of several sources kind) and convert them into a selected format (mp3 for instance).
But the best is that it uses also m3u files from winamp. If your sources are in several folders, and if winamp supports flac, then just compile a music list and save it. Then us the converter.
