I pushed the Sony Mavica disk in and it didnt suck the disk in but now I can barely see the disk and I cant reach it out how do I get it out? Or should I just push it in the rest of the way?

I think mini CD-R/RWs only work with tray loading DVD/CD-RW drives not slot loading drives.

Just try your best to get it out.

I have a buddy that uses the mini CDs with his slot loading G4 cube all the time, but I think thats only because it loads from the top. Other than that I think you need a tray loader.

It would be better not to use them. I have read somewhere that it is not a good ideas to place mini CD in Apple drives.

you don't need a tray loader you can use it in a power book you need to buy somethig for it first, it is like a full size cd and you put the mini dic in a hole that is in the middle of it. That way the computer thinks it is a full size disc that is only half way filled. This works well, you can buy it at most computer stores, for like 20$

That's what I would use as well as you might damage the drive pulling mini cd's out with tweezers...

the cd was sticking enough out of the drive that I was able to just touch the top of the cd with the tip of the tweezer and sort of drag the cd out. I didnt stick the tweezers into the slot.

It has been known when using Mini Cd's or the business card type CD's to shatter once in the drive. Its not recommended that you use these types of media in slot drives. It can be a messy process trying to get all of the bits of of a drive after this has happened, it may even cause damage beyond repair.
