    I just got my first dual disc cd/dvd combo and it is definately thicker than standard CDs or DVDs. It plays fine in my tray loading DVD player on both sides, but I am a little nervous about putting into my iMac and not being able to get it out.

    Anyone else buy and use a dual disc? I think it is a pretty good concept though. They got me to spend the extra 4 dollar premium they charge over the standard CD.

    If a disc does get stick in the drive you can always use an un-folded paper clip to get it out, I had to do that on my brother's iMac G5. When the disc comes out it spins (weither the Mac is on or off) so be careful not to scratch it. ;)

    the only poetential problem is that both sides may not work, and it says so in the documents that come with the disc. i had the NIN dual disc and only the DVD side would work in my powerbook, i was annoyed to say the least.
