Mini CDs and slot-loading drives don't mix
Authored by: M-3 on Apr 19, '07 08:18:48AM

This is something that Apple has warned against since day one of slot loading Macs. It's never a good idea to even try to play one in a slot loader on any machine on any platform. Use a tray loading machine (they even have a little groove in the tray for ones of this size). If you don't have a tray loader, it's best to find someone who does and have them burn it onto a standard sized CD.

Also of note, it's not a good idea to load a CD with a sticker type label into a slot load MacBook Pro (and probably other slot type machines as well) because you may not (easily) get the disc out.
