Sound Converter not converting

I have Ubuntu 9.04 and just installed Sound Converter. I am trying to convert a bunch of .ogg files to mp3 to play on my iPod and it's not working so well. In the Sound Converter options I have is set to convert to high quality mp3. I choose the folder that the files are in and after a moment (slow laptop) Sound Converter populates, I hit 'convert' and it shows that the conversion completes in two seconds. All that it did was create the new folder structure of artist/album but there is nothing in there. Not sure what I am missing. I used Sound Converter before and it worked fine.

Is there something different that you all might recommend for this type of conversion?

I'm not sure either - I used Sound Converter with Ubuntu just the other day to make mp3-ogg to wav ring tones for an answering machine and it worked perfectly.
Reread instructions and try again, one at a time, see what happens.

I've tried it various ways and get the same result every time. It creates the directory structure of Artist/Album but there are no mp3 file in there. SC seems to go through the motions, it scrolls through all of the input file, but it does it in about 2 secs. Not sure if I am missing a codec or something.
