Device manager is a poor old thing that often doesn't know it's a... from it's elbow.

If it works OK for recording, it doesn't matter.

I'm not sure whether XP supports DVD R/RW as standard, but in any case you would want something better, such as Easy-Cd Creator.

As XP doesn't support DVD writers don't be too worried - as DieSse says you need a program such as ECDC
