    Hi, I'm trying to install some drivers for windows, but the cd is one of those mini CD. I wanted to know if it would work, I'm afraid it would get stuck.:eek:

    Do not insert the mini cd into the macbook/macbook pro. When i first got an apple laptop i made the mistake and inserted a mini cd ad got it stuck. You will need a tray loading cd drive inorder to use it. Apart from using a mac pro/G5 PowerMac you will need to buy an external cd drive.

    Could you copy the cd on another computer first?

    So long as it does not violate your EULA.

    Screw that, just copy it and if it does violate anything just destroy the copy right afterwards. And try to keep an image copy on backup somewhere so you woulnd't run into this again.

    Also need to mention, if these drivers are for a specific hardware piece you could probably find even more updated versions online. You can just go to the manufacturers website and go to the supoort --> downloads section and look em up.
