Is there a simple, automated way to convert a large number of files between ZIP and RAR formats?

I have about 500 RAR archive files and 300 ZIP files that I want to burn to a DVD and give to someone else. I would like these 800 different archives to be in the same file format, so either 800 ZIP files or 800 RAR files. (Or better: have both!)

"There are probably several ways to doing this, but I'm presuming you have WinRar installed on your computer so:


Start Winrar
Tools > Convert Archive (or Alt + Q)
Add the folder where the files you want to convert are (this will parse through and add all archives you have specified in the checkbox area)
Click Compression
Choose Archive Format: RAR or ZIP
OK"
