I want to play mini cds standard slot drive in laptop.

My laptop has a standard slot drive. It will not accept the mini cds. Is there an adapter that will allow me to play the mini cds in a standard slot drive. I have seen a picture of a Philips product with model number SBC3580, but Philips does not recognize this product number.

Since Philips has sold their name and US product lines to the junk dealer Funai, it might be available under their name now.
You could also purchase an external drive to expand your possibilities; they are on eBay for ~ $50 US.

Is the hp a1330n usb 3.0 compatible? Mine doesn't even have the "pci-e" mini slots for plugging in a usb 3.0 card. Is my only option is replacing the motherboard with one that has pci-e slots?


- You can use PCIe x16 slot (if using onboard graphics adapter) and PCIe/USB 3.0 card (data transfer rates up to 5 Gbit/s, i.e. 10x faster than USB 2.0).
- Or use PCI/USB 3.0 card (for legacy PCI slots to support the USB 3.0 standard), which allows data transfer rates up to 1.3 Gbit/s (3x faster than USB 2.0).

What fix to apply to HL-DT-ST DVD+-RW GWA4164B in Dell Dimension E310 so it can read/play a dvd movie?


Try the following:

1. Go to the Dell.com support site and be sure you have the latest updates for your computer's operating system and the DVD drive, especially the DVD drive's drivers BIOS.

2. Make sure you have the software to play the movie, like Sonic, Windows Media Player, Power DVD, Quicktime, etc. and be sure they are the latest versions.

3. Depending on the movie format, not all DVD drives will play all DVDs. The most common discs are DVD-R and DVD+R and file types like *.avi, *.mpeg, *.mp4, *.mov and then commercial formats. Also try the movie in another machine or DVD player and see what happens.

I want to play mini cds in a standard slot drive in laptop.


You should notice in your cd tray a smaller cutout in the center. That is specifically for mini cds.

I have just bought a digital photo frame. The necessary software that comes with it is on a 'mini' CD. I have an Acer box that you normally just push an ordinary CD into. I cannot get it to take the...


Dear Kayty -

Unfortunately, the "slot" cdrom drives are not intended for use with the mini CDs. However, there are a few options; Cheapest and easiest would be to go to the Digital Photo Frame manufacturer's web site and download the software - more often than not, all of the necessary drivers and utilities can just be downloaded and installed from the net.

Otherwise, you might consider purchasing an external cdrom drive, generally costing between 30 and 60 bucks new, that would connect to your computer via USB cable. Maybe you've considered buying a CD or DVD Burner for your computer? Either one would work for installing the software from a mini-cd.

Here's a link to an external CDRW drive on ebay to give ya an idea:

Hope this helps ya!
