    Do the combo drives in Mac Minis handle mini discs? I have a few DVD mini discs, but I'm afraid to put them in.

    Alright, thank you. A friend of mine has a slot loading drive (On some Gateway laptop) and says it worked fine, I wanted to make sure for this though.

    correct me if i'm wrong, but isn't there some kind of adapter ring you can buy for 3" Discs? and will the slot-load drives accept these adapters?

    I don't know, but it wouldn't really surprise me if there was an adapter, and I see no reason for it not working.

    A friend just wanted me to see some of his home video, so it isn't too important. I just had a few discs sitting here and wanted to check before doing anything too crazy.

    Years ago i had an adaptor, the sony CD player i had (one of their first generations) didn't have a small ring so the smaller discs wouldn't play. when Coca-Cola was having some promotion with little discs people complained that they couldn't play the promotional discs and Coca-Cola started giving out the plastic rings to put the smaller ones in to so they played in a standard sized tray.

    I would think that there is one, but no way in hell id trust it on my slot loading drive. However if you still want an adaptor.. here is a link.. http://www.bestvalueplus.net/index.php?main_page=product_info&currency=USD&products_id=132
