ok, I'll explain in a little more detail:
Z-CLV means that the burning is done at a constant speed, but jumps to higher speeds at certain "zones". So writing might start at 4x, and continue at 4x for about 25% of the disc. Then writing will briefly stop, and start again at 6x, and the 6x writing will continue for maybe another 25% of the disc, and then the burning will stop again briefly, and begin again at 8x, which will continue for the rest of the disc. This would be an example of a possible 8x Z-CLV writing strategy.
P-CAV means that the burning speed starts at one speed, and gradually works it's way to a top speed, and will continue at the speed until the end of the disc, *OR* it may reach the top speed by the end of the disc. This writing strategy is faster then using Z-CLV since it does not require the burn process to stop at any point, and usually begins at a faster speed anyways. Unfortunatly, for the moment it seems like DVD-R may not allow for P-CAV writing.... but we will have to see if this can be worked around or not.
I hope that clears things up for you!
