    Does anyone know whether a 8 cm CDRW can be use in Powerbook Superdrive? Will the cd be stuck inside? I need to know ASAP as there are important data waiting to be retrieve... Thanx. Following I have the image attached of how it looked like.

    80 cm? Centimeters? That's pretty wide.
    Is the disk normally sized. I have never heard of an 80cm disk?

    Do you mean a High capacity 90min/800mb Those disk are not larger in physical size, but are "verified" to write the extra distance on some burners.
