Converting Lossless To Lossy...

I made backups of my Cd's in lossless [APE] with one file for CD with cue-sheets. I wanna know, there is any software what can  read the cue-sheets and "re-create" the tracks separately and after compress them to another format [lossy in this case] keeping all the info [artist, name of track] of cue-sheet?
Sorry for my bad english.

I'm installed foobar but when I added the file foobar doesn't 'find" the cue-sheet what is in the same folder of the file. This cue-sheet was made by EAC.
Here it is:

Someone can tell me what's wrong with it? I tried to replace *.wav from *.ape but don't work.
Sorry for my bad english.

you should add the cue sheet to foobar, not the actual file. the cue sheet should be pointing to the audio file, which should be in the same folder.

Change this line in the cuesheet :
FILE "Iron Maiden - Killers.wav" WAVE

To instead :
FILE "Iron Maiden - Killers.ape" WAVE

Then download the Monkey's Audio decoding plugin for fb2k here :
http://www.foobar2000.org/components/foo_input_monkey.zip

Unpack the .zip archive and move the file "foo_input_monkey.dll" into "C:\Program Files\foobar2000\Components" and restart fb2k.

Thanks  again, I just missed the "add the cue-sheet and not the actual file"
