Either.

Using the brand name and model number in a search in google returned on
first return results page of web search the following:

Suggested newsgroups if your news server carries them:
alt.video.dvd.authoring
alt video.dvd.software
alt.video.dvdr

I anticipate questions from you on DVD media manufacturers, burning
software, burning software usage, comparative analysis from users of burning
software, how to disable XPs onboard CD burning application, codecs, how to
get codecs, bitrate for mpg2 for saving to convert to DVD for video, DVD
compression/ripping/encoding/converting methodology. Go to those newgroups
or similar except for the one XP question noted.

CAV is constant angular velocity by the way. And, yes, before you ask, you
should enable DMA for the NEC DVD burner. You find out how yourself by
using help and keyword DMA in XP's help. And, before you ask, Ricoh is an
actual maker of CD/DVD media. These are resold under different brand names,
then sold at the retail market. The consumer can buy direct.

use either +R or +RW . You cannot use -R or -RW as your drive is not dual
format. This is no big deal unless you have a very old DVD player as some of
those won't accept the + format.
