Load up the MP3, and go to File -> Export as Ogg Vorbis (in the stable version), or File -> Export with the file type set as "Ogg Vorbis Files" (in the beta).

you can go to the volume settings when you edit it inside audacity.  :)

Are there any free ones that you reccomend? And the reason I need to convert songs is for KS. I'm glad I know how to do it now!

I think I know what your promblem is. You probably had the audio paused. It needs to be stopped to modify the options or export the file.

When something smells, it's usually my monitor.
