Thank you so much, gentlemen! Storm, I had problems making the changes on page 2 on the device tab under settings, but the "Discovery" mode was A LOT easier to find and make the adjustments, as suggested by Bean55. My first disc to back up was "The Lincoln Lawyer". It had a chapter ''repeat'' issue, so I was a bit miffed at first. But that was the only incident with that copy. I then backed up "Insidious" and only had one minor pause of less than a half second, which is considerably better than my first attempt at this title. My dvd/vhs combo unit is an Orion, made back in the late 90's/early 00's, so I'm wondering if that has anything to do with my issues.
Regardless, I'm very happy with my vastly improved performance! Thank you so much StormJumper for your tireless efforts and dedication in making DVDFab and this forum a pleasure to be a part of! You and the other moderators and senior members have my adoration!
