(Usually .wav files.) The same program may convert them to .mp3 or .ogg files. In any case, there are several programs that use lame or notlame to convert between formats. But you probably will not be happy about the sound quality when converting between .ogg and .mp3 files. Because of the way they compress the sound file, each looses some of quality. But they do not do it the same way, so converting from one to the other results in a greater loss of quality.
