✔ Best Answer
There used to be 3"-5" adapter "donuts" for sale to allow use iof a mini cd in a slot load drive; believe they weren't worth the effort though.

I'd just copy the driver cd to a full size cd and use it that way...shouldn't be too difficult and you get something you can actually use.

HI Sony,

I do not know your machine or drive, but my cd drive can accept both regular and mini size cd's.

When the tray on mine opens, there is a normal size circular receptacle and within this, slightly lower is the smaller receptacle.

Please advise back on progress.

Good Luck - Keep us posted.

Aren't the Apple drives slot loaders? I wouldn't trust a mini CD in one of them.

thanks for the replies... my comp is just a macbook 10.6 with a regular cd drive that seems to accept only the reg size cds (doesnt open). i dont think it reads smaller cds as it isnt loading any small ones. i put it in and nothing happens, just sits at the edge and doesnt even sense it. i'm obviously electronic illiterate so need help to play/load one of these babies. do i need to buy external hardware?

Do you know anyone with a conventional PC who might be able to copy it to a conventional CD for you? If there's a "mom and pop" computer shop near you they might do it for a nominal fee.
