With these drives you can read and record DVDs and/or CDs in all kinds of formats. Please note the difference between DVD+R and DVD-R when buying a DVD burner, often drives can write only to one of those two media types, sometimes to both. When you buy a drive that only supports one type, you will always have to be careful to choose the right writable DVD discs in the shop. Newer DVD drives also support writing to Dual Layer DVDs. This kind of discs have a storage capacity of 8.5 GB instead of the usual 4.7 GB. DVD (re)writers generally can read and write CDs also, but only some CD (re)writers can read DVDs.

First writers to feature Labelflash technology, for creative disc labelling
Introducing the new ND-4551A model
New range also features DVD RAM functionality

NEC today launched the world's first DVD burners with Labelflash technology. Labelflash burns custom motifs, lettering or images onto the top side of blank DVD media, giving users the chance to get creative when labelling their DVD and CD collections. The NEC ND-3551A and ND-4551A are new models, offering NEC’s highest specification performance to date, plus Labelflash functionality. They will be available from December 2005.

Labelflash – faster labelling of self-burned DVDs
Innovative Labelflash technology simplifies the labelling of self-burned DVDs – e.g. for easy archiving – and also enables creative disc design. Eliminating the need for messy paper labelling systems, which are especially ineffective at high speeds and can damage the disc and drive. Labelflash offers a professional-looking, reliable alternative.

Labelflash delivers high image quality, in 256 different shades. The labelling process can take as little as seven minutes, depending on the resolution selected. Both the top side and the data side of the disc can be labelled. To burn images on the top of the disc requires specialised media. Labelflash discs have a special top coating, 0.6 millimetre-thick, which ensures the image will not fade. However using Labelflash you can burn images on to the data side of any standard disc, in an area not already written with data.
