    I inserted a Mini CD into the CD drive; apparently a Mini was not meant to be inserted. Anyone know how I can get it out? Thanks.

    try pressing eject and then hold it vertically, it may fall out? my last resort would be to use a large paperclip (seperated slightly to hold the disc) and CAREFULLY try and pull it out

    You are d'man. I used the paper clip with a hook on the end, and snagged it on the first attempt. What a sense of relief. Many thanks for the suggestion.
