Basically, it is irrelevant whether you print on the label or the data side when creating labels. The label is actually printed outside the normal burn process.
You can print on the label side of the DVD at any time.
We recommend that you print on the data side first when you have burned the compilation. It is not possible to burn data on a printed data side. When you insert a DVD on which data has already been burned, Nero Express automatically identifies the space that is still available on the data side and on which you can print.
To print a Labelflash label on the label side or a DiskT@2 on the data side of your DVD, proceed as follows:
- If you want to print a Labelflash label on the label side, insert a blank Labelflash disc into the recorder with the label side facing down.
- The Burn Label window is opened with the Labelflash logo.
- If you want to print a DiskT@2 on the data side, insert a blank Labelflash disc with the data side facing down in the recorder.
- The Burn Label window is opened with the DiskT@2 logo.
- Create a label according to your requirements or open a label that you have already created with Nero CoverDesigner.
- If you want to change the area in which the label is printed, change the print area accordingly using the input fields Inner Radius and Width.
- If you want to view or change the print properties:
- Click the Change button.
- The Labelflash Print Properties window is opened.
- If you want to change the printing quality, select a quality level from the Print quality profile drop-down menu.
- If you select the User defined entry from the Print quality profile drop-down menu, you can change the contrast level and the rotation speed.
- Click the OK button.
- The Labelflash Print Properties window is closed and the changes are accepted.
- Click the Burn button.
- The labeling procedure starts and the Labelflash – printing or DiscT@2 – printing window is opened. The window shows the estimated printing time and the print progress. When printing is complete, a message window is opened informing about the successful print process.
- Click the OK button.
- The message window is closed and the disc ejected.
- You have successfully printed a label.
Labelflash is a technology with which pictures and texts can be burned on the label or data side of a disc with a laser.
A label refers to a label on a disc. Some drives, e.g. drives that use LightScribe or Labelflash technology, can transfer labels directly to special media.
