CDRipper, Grip and other ripping programs take CD tracks, and
convert them to music files. (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.
