    iBook's new slot loading CD drive
    Does anyone here knows if its safe to use small CDs with the new slot loading drives?

    I'm just afraid it might not come back out!

    and how do you manually eject this drives anyway? I dont see no holes for paper clips

    On the slot loading iMacs, the manual eject is in the far right corner. Could be the same on the iBook :confused:

    Does this no cover all slot loading drives no matter the machine? :confused: Or rather, does the no only extend for iBooks?

    Fuuny, My 5 year old slot-loading car stereo will load, center and play the smaller discs. Wonder why the computer drives can't?

    Apple choose to keep costs down, i guess.... but why would anyone wanna burn to 3" CDR's when standard ones are much cheaper?

    You can load a smaller CD if you want. Apple charge a small fortune to remove the CD from your drive!

    Actually, if you read your User Manual you'd already know it...

    doh!

    Curse those small cds! I thought they were too good to be true.

    And no I didn't 'try out' putting a small cd into my PowerBook. :p

    I always thought the small CDs a bit daft. I mean if the capacity is so good, why not exploit that on a regular size CD and enjoy the greater storage?
