Hi Rich... You neede mplayer/mconverter for this: http://www.mplayerhq.hu/

Mplayer is a movie player but will also play audio.  You can select the output file to be WAV.  Just check out the documentation.  It will be something like: mplayer -playlist $INFILE -ao pcm:file="$OUTFILE.wav"

Then you just use whatever OS you have's command line scripting to list all the files you have and convert them one by one.
