My files are too big!

I got a new MP3 player, and so obviously I'm putting a bunch of music on it.
One problem is that, when I uploaded my Rush albums to my PC, without noticing, I uploaded them at 320kbs, and well, they take up well over a gig. On my PC, this isn't a problem, but I have more limited space on my player. Is there a way to take a bunch of song files all of the same type and bitrate and convert them to a lower bitrate? Say, probably 128kbs? I have a program that can do conversions, but it only does one at a time, and you have to manually add each song when the last one is done. It's 18 albums worth of songs, so this isn't ideal.

    If I recall correctly http://www.dbpoweramp.com/dmc.htm has a batch function for converting alot of files at once (& fix volume if needed).

    Doesn't Windows Media Player do that? Just look under the options for CD-ripping, set it to MP3 instead of WMA, DRM to off, and then turn the bit rate down.

    The thing is, they're already uploaded, and ripping them again would be a pain in the ass, since there's 18 of them.

    Thanks.

    Wow, you're helpful. Seriously, I'm asking a question about file conversion, and you attack my musical tastes? I just don't understand.

    128 is way too low. Stick with 192 kbps if you're looking at a constant bitrate. A high quality VBR rip is really the best option though.
