I'm trying to convert from flac to .mp3 to add to SD card on phone, but everytime I try to convert with one of these highly recommended Software Center apps, the conversion fails.

you could not be having all the required codecs..... –  Ashu Apr 30 '12 at 3:49
Do you have any more detail you can add to this question? Fail how? Is there an error dialog, etc? –  Jorge Castro May 1 '12 at 1:06

I had the same issue, so to clarify. You add a load of files, click start, and as it starts they all say 'failed'.

I basically didn't have all the unrestricted codecs installed, so option B here fixed it: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1117283
