- The Drive
In order to test this technology, we used the NEC
ND-4551A, flashed with firmware version 1.07, which is the only one that supports the LabelFlash Technology.
As we said previously, you can use Labelflash as well
on the data side of any standard DVD-R or DVD +R media, by burning the label
on the outer area of the data side of the disc, or on the whole area if you
don't burn any actual data on it.

- The media
The media we used for our test was made by Fujifilm. It was a DVD-R certified for 16X recording. The depth of the picture-burning layer is 0.6mm from the disc surface while the Dye for the picture-burning layer is the Organic Dye. The Picture-burning area (radius) is 25mm - 58mm.
- The Software
Nero in cooperation with Yamaha made a version that supports the LabelFlash
Technology but currently this version is for bundle with OEM customers. The
Nero 126.96.36.199 bundles in the retail package of the ND-4551A recorder and supports
LabelFlash. It is not sure whether Nero
will add this
will be in
BHA has also announced support for the LabalFlash in its OEM version of the
Bs software, bundled with a LabelFlash burner under the Japanese I-O Data brand.
The familiar interface of Nero Burning Rom will guide you through the simple
steps in order to "LabelFlash" your media.
