Batch Conversion/Extraction DNG to JPEG?

just left the DSLR passion back to ordinary P&S camera Panasonic TZ7, I need to EXTRACT JPEG image from Adobe-DNG format.
I've several thousand files to be converted, all reside in a recursive Windows folder structure.
I'm looking for an EASY tool! Selecting the image root directory and PROCESS with high speed (it's just extraction, no processing).
I've tried IrfanView but wasn't happy with the UI.
Digital Photography - - Instant JPEG From Raw Utility will do the job, but NOT recursively.
Any good freeware out there? Best regards

Not sure why you don't like Irfanview's UI, but it is has one of the easiest batch conversion utilities out there. FastStone has a very similar setup (sometimes I think it's borrowed concepts from IrfanView), and there are a few others.

If you let us know what you didn't like about IrfanView, perhaps we can make better suggestions.

Imagemagik has a conversion module that is quite fast. It's used from the command line, but once you get a handle on it's tags it actually pretty easy to use, is pretty fast, and gives you full control of your conversion. Their site lists several programs that used Imagemagik as a core, so one of those might have a GUI if the command line is not to your liking.
