    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..
