is a 3" CD compatible with the iMac's optical drive?
Absolutely not. This isn't a Wii we're dealing with.
Which coincidentally is the only slot drive that I know of that handles smaller discs.
How about if it's in a adapter ring? I have a few old 3" CD's i would like to load in iTunes.
Guessing thats purely down to Gamecube disk support?
i just though about that
I think i have one from 1994
Indeed, there was even a handful of slot loading macs that could handle 3" CD's. But most can't..
I wouldn't try one in a slot drive with an adaptor ring either.
I also have a few 3" cd's.. Fortunately I have quite an old Firewire cd burner drive that can take them, as its tray loading. So I can always hook that up for the rare occasion it's needed.
Time to get an external tray drive or borrow a friend's computer.
try an external usb disk drive like the macbook air has but the one that you can get for the air wont work for your imac so just try a mac compatible external disk drive
Your best bet is to buy an external drive for like $40-$50.
Your best bet is not to spend $50 on a drive for a couple of disks, rather to copy the data off, rip them, or whatever, on another computer, say - handy PC - then USB stick/full-size CD them over.
Thanks for all the great suggestions! i'll try firing up the old PC and copy to a full size CD.
