  • I just did something brave with slot loading dvds

    I'd like to confirm that mini-cdr's are totally compatible with all slot loading dvd-roms and stand alone dvd players. I was scared because almost all car cd players will not accept mini-cdrs. Either they get stuck going in or when ejected you need tweezers to pull it out.

    At my work i tested mini-cdrs on the head units. I ruined 3 and had to use tweezers to pull out 6 and only 2 worked fine. The two that didn't have any trouble were dvd players. I tested mini-cds on dvd-roms laptops and standalone dvd players. All checked out fine.

    Anyways
    I got my 16x Pioneer slot load dvd rom (ebay) for $47. This one will replace the one in my current carputer, cuz it's so cool.

    The pro's:
    It's able to take on more shock.
    Can be mounted in any position.
    Can't break the tray, cuz there is none.
    There's no price differecne between slot and tray loaders

          I like them cause they're easier to give out to people, they can just slide it into a jacket pocket or something. Not that I would waste them by putting music on them.

            Doesn't the Pioneer Slot Load take a lot of juice to power it? It's a 3.5" DVD player...

                I think I hada 2 amp fuse on the line feeding mine when I started - it was fine till it spun up - blew the fuse.
                Now it has a 7 something amp fuse.... I should really take a reading and see what it draws.

                  Please do.. inquiring minds would love to know.. Especially during DVD playback...

                  The only reason I'm getting the jerry-rigged IMAC slot-load DVD is because it supposedly sucks less (proverbial) "juice"

                  I'd rather get this pioneer, since it's cheaper and simpler..

                      Like I said, I don't use them for music so no need to worry about car cd players. I put photos and past presentations and stuff, people like them better than normal sized cause they aren't as bulky.

                        I have a 400watt inverter. The last thing i want to worry about is power consumption.

                        I use mini cd's for music videos, mp3 cds, data, and for it's coolness. I love passing out mini-cd's, and they match perfectly with my mini-itx system.

                          My friend had gotten a Sony Mavica camera that burns to the mini 6-cm CD's. It included a plastic "jacket" that basically makes the little CD the size of a large CD. I wish I could tell you where to get one without getting an entire camera, but at least you know they exist. ^_^
