    Sorry if this is a stupid question... I am a grad student and one of my textbooks came with one of those mini CD-ROM disks that are about 3" in diameter. Since they're so much smaller than a normal CD, I'm apprehensive about sliding it into the disk drive on my new Macbook for fear that it may get stuck or it won't be recognized. Does anyone know if these tiny disks work with the type of drive a Macbook has? I really don't want it to get stuck. Thanks!

    No, don't put it in there. High probability of it getting stuck.

    DON'T DO IT!!!! IT WILL GET STUCK! Apple slot drives cannot handle 3" media. You really need to find a tray loader to handle it.
