Shooting out of my hip, untested:

for i in "`find /media/music -name '*.jpg' -print`"; do convert "$i"
"`gawk -F . "$i" '{print $1}'`.bmp"; done

(which could also be done with find's -exec, but I don't have the
syntax at hand and not "saved" in my head. Also, I assume you don't
have dots in your filenames)
