Sorry, I didn't know there was so much more info to give! I am using Easy VHS to DVD 3- NOT plus. He played it on his laptop although I will try it on a DVD player. I used a Memorex 120 disk, but I read here that they aren't the best. However, I only taped 40 minutes of cartoons, so it didn't go over 60 min. Also, I read that you need to copy it to your computer, THEN burn it because people are having trouble with it finishing. I was also having trouble with it finishing, so I just pushed the eject button. Oops. Is that the time that the program is setting the pause, rewind, forward functions, perhaps?
