Your question isn't very clear, but if you are asking where to find out if you have a DVD burn opposed to a DVD-ROM you should be able to tell by looking at the front of the drive. It will usually be labeled as a DVD-RW or DVD-ROM.

If you want to know exactly what you have try downloading Everest Home Edition, this is a free utility which will show the make, model, and whether it is a ROM or RW.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Also, Windows XP doesn't burn DVD's natively, you need a DVD buring program like Nero to do it.
