ANSI to get this Unicode converted to ANSI

Normally when I would convert a Unicode file to ANSI, I just bust open Notepad++ and use it's handy-dandy Convert option, but now I've got some MASSIVE text files that can't be opened by Notepad++!

I basically need to convert these unicode files to ANSI, and I can't open them with Notepad++. They are approaching 1GB in size, and I'm not really sure what the next best option is. I've also tried a WiToAnsi.vbs script I found with the Google (from MS's site), but that script throws an error after getting just a few MBs into the file. My knowledge of vim is limited - I'm going to maybe try OpenOffice next and see if there's a conversion option there. Any experience or helpful suggestions welcome - thanks MeFi!
