    since the iMac has side slot loading instead of a drive that ejects, how do i put those really small discs that come with products.

    Yeah, you can't put into the slot loading drive. You'd need to get an external drive like Stretch said. DO NOT put it into your slot loading drive.

    That little adaptor looks really cool! I have a blank one my cousin gave me (he uses them for photography storage), but I cant use it with my powerbook. Good for apple to be pioneering!

    Haha they could make their boxes even smaller!

    Mind you, not every patent Apple applies for makes it to market but that could be really cool for sure.

    I've never seen one of those mini disks that ever contained anything useful. Mostly drivers for PCs, or advertising.

    This is the only time I came across a mini CD I needed. I bought some SanDisk CFII Extreme III cards and they came with a data recovery app that was on a mini CD.

    Luckily I still had my G4 iMac so I installed it on my iMac G5 via Target Disk mode.
