There will be data loss in converting from mp3 to ogg format because mp3 is 
already using lossy compression.  You want to ogg the original source data, 
although a 44.1 KHz .wav file is basicly raw PCM audio plus a header, anyway.

Anyway, look for something called sox, which is a good sound format converter
