i went to go buy some cd-rw's today and i found some mini cd-rw's for way cheap and thought that they would be great for a nomad like myself. Will they work in the iBook Combo-drive?

Those disks wont work in any slot-fed drive. They'll just end up getting stuck and causing you a really bad day. :mac:

i think i remember reading in the past here that those types of cd's will not work. If I remember correctly someone posted that you can buy some kind of mini-cd type adapter ; basically it's a regular sized cd where you place the mini cd in the middle for it to read correctly. Don't know if that makes any sense and I'm not sure if this would even work correctly. Definately post if you find any solution!
