Can you put a 8cm DVD disk into the slot loading DVD Superdrive in a new Powerbook 15"? Some say yes, some say no. What is the truth? Anybody know for sure?

Not without a clip on extension that makes it the correct size, then it never spins correctly and induces all kinds of read errors.

You can't reliably use them in the slot-load drives.

Feel free to try, but you'll most likely break your drive. My friend did.

C'mon! It won't work, 'cos its too small!

Seriously, you will need a slot loading CD drive for anything thats not regular CD size.

Duh.

Are you being funny? Do you mean you need a tray drive?
