    Unhappy Suggestions & Consults
    Hi everyone,

    Well i am new member of the forum, and i just arrived here looking for some help with a simple problem i'm having with my Mac Book Pro, so if anyone could give a hand, i'll aprecciate.

    Could be possible that MBP can't read disks of the mini cd type or v-cards, or it's just a problem of my own. The matter is that as they are so small that the unit doesn't tried to load it.
    Is there any way just to use this type of cds.

    Thanks for any reply.

    15in i7 MacBook Pro, 8GB RAM, 120GB SSD, 500GB HD
    You need an external tray loading CD Drive. If you manage to get one of the mini discs in your MacBook's CD Drive, good luck, because you will probably never see it again.

    Specs:
    2x 2.4GHz MBP. 1x old school Mac Mini.
    There are adapters available (http://www.amazon.com/Memorex-3-Inch.../dp/B000M52EW0)

    however, I usually ask clients to supply only normal size cd's.

    I would avoid those in a high-speed drive (which is probably why they are no longer available). The rotational speeds have been known to cause even slightly damaged discs to fracture into small pieces, destroying the drive. I would imagine the same type of thing is possible with these adapters.

    Like Stretch said, your best bet would be to pick up a tray-loading, external CD drive. Something like this would be your best bet.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    I tried that the other day and I was so scared that the mini disc was stuck. I just shoook my Macbook and it kinda slid out....I was so relieved
