I try to convert videos coming of the FinalCut (.mov) to Windows Media (.wmv)
road Windows Media Eencoder, but always stop in 9 minutes and 27 seconds.  
The original videos has 15 minutes or more.  Somebody knows to explain this, or
indicate a solution?

Of 2 solutions i can think now:
a) Did you watch the 567 second (9 minutes and 27 seconds) of the movie? Maybe it's wrongly encoded.
b) Are you sure you have enough space on the drives in action

i have 230 Gb free in HD and all videos, from any computers have same problem. If i cut on several videos of 9 minutes the problem does not occur.

Super is a completely free video/audio converter that achieves for free what most can't achieve for money!

Simply drag and drop the file into the program, select your output container and away it goes!

Here is a basic guide to using the program:

Good luck!

I agree with shuboarder that SUPER is a great product.

On some particularly problematic video files, I get good results with TMPGEnc 4.0 Express:
