Musicmatch Jukebox allows you to re-encode mp3's at any bit-rate. Here's a link to oldversion.com's Musicmatch page. Get version 8 as the newer versions are horrible. Musicmatch is free though they have a paid version as well, you should be fine with the free version.

Once installed goto >> file >> convert files and the rest is self explanatory.

I am a big fan of dBPowerAmp:
http://www.download.com/dBpowerAmp-M...ml?tag=lst-0-1

It converts mp3s to wav and vice versa. It can change the sampling rate for you, and it is very easy to use. It also rips cds.

I tried Musicmatch, but it converted all my my files to where they defaultly open with musicmatch (ive tired changing them back to wm) It also deleted my tags on the mp3's, with musicmatch you have to upgrade to the pro version just to get tags.
