Ask Max: mini-DVDs with a PowerBook?

Asked on 09/07/2006:

Can you use the mini-DVDs in a G4 Powerbook? I didn't want to stick one in the driver and get it stuck.


I am glad you asked the question before putting the disc in your PowerBook. We have had to break down many a computer to remove those mini CDs and DVDs. They do get stuck in the drive and sometimes damage a drive beyond repair. With slot loading optical drives like the ones in the G4 and Intel laptops, you should never put any disc in it other than a standard sized disc (12 cm). This is also true for slot loading iMacs and XServes. You just saved yourself a world of trouble by checking first.Jacob Loeb
