Mini DVDs in Superdrive?

Can I put a mini DVD (which is roughly one-half the width of a regular CD/DVD) in the Superdrive of my MBP? Something about this scares me--I guess I'm worried that when it ejects, it won't eject far enough for me to pull it out. The mini DVD came from a camcorder.

I presume it will work, but can anyone confirm?

Thanks!

DO NOT use Mini-DVDs in the SuperDrive!

I bought an external tray loader just for this purpose.

Lol I learned the hard way. Definitely don't try it. I had to shake my macbook upside down to get the disc far enough out to pull it! :eek:
