    I have quite a few concerts downloaded on FLAC and/or SHN files. Are there any free programs to:

    1.convert these to MP3 and retain the naming files (assuming there are naming files incorporated)?

    2. Should I first convert these to wave then use EAC to mp3?

    3. Do you have any suggestions for ease of use?

    Thanks,

    Dan

    I second the dbpoweramp recommendation. You can get Shorten and FLAC plugins for it, and it'll encode with LAME right to MP3 from SHN or FLAC.

    There's also a shn2mp3 script out there (I think it's Perl, not positive) that'll convert a directory at a time, and attempt to get info from the text info file to plug into the ID3 fields. It's in the etree-scripts package.

    mkw Audio Compression Toolkit will batch convert SHN files to/from MP3 and WAV format. It's donationware. This forum won't let me post the URL since I haven't written enough posts yet. Google should find it for you.
