A slight pause after deleting a clip

[qanda]This thread is about the Toshiba RD-XS24 - DVD Recorder. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]hi,

when I split one video into several on my DVD recorder’s hard drive and delete a scene, there is always a slight pause at the end of the clip that preceeded the deleted one during playback.

is there anyway to avoid this?
the recorder is a Toshiba RD-XS24

thanks
