    Hello all,

    I have what I suspect is a stupid question. Are the optical drives in macbookpros supposed to accept miniCDs?

    I ask because a piece of hardware I bought recently had its drivers on a miniCD and when I tried inserting it into my drive, it didn't really do anything. I ended up having to shake it out (yay sudden motion sensors).

    Do they just not work or was I doing something wrong?

    Thanks in advance.

    From what I have read, they do not work. Good thing yours didn't get stuck.

    So use another machine to copy the contents of the mini cd on a regular sized cd.
