Xiph QuickTime Components (XiphQT) is a set of QuickTime plug-ins that allow iTunes, and other QuickTime-based applications, to play ogg vorbis files.

I assume that'd mean you can use iTunes to batch convert.

I hope you're not expecting anything amazing to result from this kind of conversion.

What happens if you convert a low quality ogg file to a 160kbps mp3? ;)

Did you quit and reopen quicktime before trying? Did you try logging out/restarting?

I don't mean to be rude, but is your Google broken?

If you have Toast it will convert and export to iTunes in one go

So toast can convert the files to mp3 without the need to burn them on to cd?
How is this done? Because i just looked through toast 7's menu's etc.. and i couldn't find it.
Late last night i just burnt some to cd and then imported them bak into itunes however the song info's were all gone.

Sorry I did not mention that its Toast 8 that allows you to export
