Default DVD-RW reconized as DVD-R?

First of all I dont know if this is a big deal or not...

Anyways, I just got my Dell e510 today. It has XP Home SP2 on it, which I didnt like so I installed XP Pro (non-sp2). Now my DVD drive is showing up as a "DVD-R" instead of "DVD-RW" as it did when XP Home was installed.

Will installing SP2 on pro fix this ? Do I need drivers or something? Is this not really a problem??
