Default Converting FLAC to MP3

Hi folks, newbie here.

I've downloaded tracks from a couple of threads, the files are in FLAC format but my computer won't recognise them if I try to put them into a converter program. I usually use Any Audio Converter, but have tried another program which won't recognise them either. I appreciate FLAC is loads better, but I like to listen to music on my iPhone when I'm out so lack storage space.

Any advice appreciated!

free and easy to use

if you want to rip music from cds to any format or burn cds from any format including flac hd this is free forever and also burns dvds from proper dvd files not from mp4 though

only thing you need is an email for the licence key

There's quite a decent encoder in Nero under 'extras'.
