Why not just put all the files to be converted into a playlist, and then play them in Winamp with one of the MP3 output plug-ins selected? (Both Nullsoft's and PP's MP3 output plug-ins are pretty high quality.)

Well, because that's not what I am trying to do.

What I am trying to do is...
I have all these mp3 files in a variety of
good compression rates.

But when I transfer to my mp3 player, I want them all
to be mono at 64 kbps.

What I do now is cumbersome. I have to use winamp
to convert them all into .wav and then encode them
at 64 kbps.

So I am looking for a software that will save
my time on this. A software that will batch convert
mp3 files' rates.

Right. So just use one of those MP3 output plug-ins. Why not?

Actually, if you want stereo, and if your player supports it, you might try encoding some of those files to WMA @ 64kbps - it's really not that bad for casual listening, and definitely better than mp3 @ 96kbps.

I still say "Try Goldwave". You can select any number of mp3's (of varying attributes) and batch convert them all to anything from 48000Hz, stereo, 320kbps to 16000Hz, mono, 8kbps. And anything in between. Also supports conversions to and from other file formats.

Same with Winamp. Either way would work, but I assume norsez already has Winamp but doesn't already have Goldwave.

Guys, Thanks for the input.
I am interested in the WMA solution.
Where can I get the WMA encoder ???
I think my Nomad II supports it.
I think I saw it in the manual.
