    I recently purchased USB to serial converter for my power book g4, but the disc that it comes with is small, like a gamecube game. Since there's no try to put it in and a I need to install this or the cord won't work, how can I do it? Do I just stick it in or is there an alternative *insert sexual joke here*

    I don't have access to an external loading drive. So I shouldn't put it in? It won't work no matter what? Will it work in my iMac desktop? That doesn't have a tray either.

    Don't put it in there. Mini CDs can get stuck and destroy a slot-loading drive.

    More info about what Apple might be planning to get round it.

    You'll need a tray-loading external drive to use it, or if you know someone that has a Mac with a a tray-loading external drive, maybe they can make a disk image of it for you.
