    Are y'all aware of any notebooks that have drives which will only read Mini CDs? I just got a request from an employee who says his client can only read Minis. I've not seen any PC setup this way. Seems that a full size CD drive isn't that large.

    I've never heard of one before. Perhaps he's using a camera that uses Mini-CD's as a drive via USB? I would ask more questions of him.

    Is the real issue here whether you want to purchase/provide these CD's to the employee?

    Yep, I plan to.

    No. The cost is trivial and we can burn the Minis in a regular CDRW. I was just curious as to whether any notebook vendor would make such a limiting configuration. Software installs would be a real trip.
     
  5. When mini CD's first came out there were some mini CD only drvices.Most of these unique drives were discontinued in 2002.
     
  6. OOO Sony has a new external mini disk drive now they are pushing for notebooks.It burns and plays MD's to 1gig and mini CD's to 305Mb.
