If possible, I'd like to maintain all tag info and I'm hoping software will convert files en masse not one at a time. shareware on does not seem that capable. Hoping to find a single best tool to do this with...

I use the method noted on CNet. I put them on CDR and then use CDEX to rip my MP3. For me this is not a big deal since I have all of a handful of iTunes product.
