    You can't use small or irregularly sized discs in an slot-loading drive.

    You have to use an external or use another computer.

    As a matter of fact, irregular sized Disc wont work on most slot-loading drives. The Wii is the only device, that I know of, that accepts both regular CDs and GameCube-sized CDs.

    You're lucky you haven't jammed any drives then. Small CD's are a big no no with slot loading.

    eh :rolleyes:
    now i know for sure for sure
    it jammed the drive, and i was sure i'd have to take apart the MBP (at 2 weeks old) to get it out. instead, i put another cd in and it spit them both out :D

    so...don't try 3 in. cds. And maybe don't try my method of removal. Nothing got scratched, though.
