I'm not sure what your term "I cannot activate LabelFlash" means. Did you install all required/necessary software? Do you mean it won't open or something else?

How LabelFlash works:

Usually, a burning application will supply a DVD recorder with raw digital data, to which the recorder's hardware adds header and error correction information and then converts it to the so-called eight to sixteen (EFM+) modulated patterns. These are the little chunks of data that get written to the disc.

The modulated patterns for DVD writing vary from a minimum value to a maximum value. A combination of these patterns, is used for writing to DVD-R and DVD+R. The result is that the burned area looks darker than the unused area. LabelFlash takes things further and breaks free from the limitations imposed by normal modulated patterns. This allows for more flexibility in how the laser burns onto DVD recordable media, making the formation of visible images possible.

Fact: LabelFlash compatible disks cost about double what Litescribe disks do.
