    Hey. I've noticed some slot-in drives support both standard (12cm) size and mini (8cm) size discs. (The original slot-in G3 iMac and the upcoming Nintendo Revolution come to mind.)

    Do anyone know if this works with the Mac Mini's? Spesifically the new intel Mac Mini's?

    You mean those small disks?

    They won't work and it'll screw up your drive. Don't try it.

    EDIT: Update your sig! :p

    Have you tried? It has apparently worked on at least one earlier Mac..



    Sorry.. Can't shrink my sig. because of new stupid rules that'll make me shrink it down to 150 characters, which is not enough.. Anyways.. The real iPod Stereo hasn't come yet. It wasn't even worthy being called an iPod Boombox!

    When I was trying to get a CD out of my Mac mini drive I read all sorts of warnings about using non-standard CD sizes. Hell, it sounds like even full size CD's can cause problems if they're not 'perfect'.
