Its not recommended to use mini cds in any slot loading drive unless it otherwise states. You can use an external tray CD drive.

It will get lodged inside the drive. I wouldn't recommend it.
You can't find the drivers online?

just go to the manufacturers website, they will probably have the drivers there

Once it got stuck in my iMac, and I had to get a pair of tweezers to take the CD out. It wasnt in enough for the eject button to push it out.

I would also advise downloading the drivers from the Net.

i found a solution because this happened to my iBook. I put the mini CD into a windows CD drive copied the files then burnt them to a bigger disc! works like a charm!
