I had a similar (but not identical) problem, and I wrote a script to solve 
it. I wanted to recursively go through a directory tree, find flac files, 
and make mp3s of them while transferring over the ID3 tags, while keeping 
a duplicate directory structure for the mp3s. And don't do the conversion 
if the file already exists.

My script is based on traverse2.sh by Steve Parker, which is at 
http://steve-parker.org/sh/eg/directories/. His tutorial site is extremely 
helpful, and I recommend it.

My script is at http://pastebin.com/77NRE6SZ - maybe you can adapt it to 
your needs.

HTH.
