Does anyone know of a program that can convert SID or PSID files to MP3s, WAVs, etc?

At least Sidplay2/W (http://www.gsldata.se/c64/spw/) can save as WAV. From there on, you'd use your favorite MP3 converter. You could also capture audio with Audacity (http://audacity.sourceforge.net/) or some other sound recorder. If you own a HardSID or any other expansion card that has a real SID chip fitted, I suppose it would be the way to do it.

For some reason, it only converts the first 30 seconds. Why is that?

Check Settings -> Wav. Since a SID file doesn't have an obvious ending (although many play to the end and stop), in theory you could fill your hard disk with one giant WAV file if there was no restriction.

Thanks! I can't get Comic Bakery to end smoothly, but it works well enough.
