Hi Neil
Basically you're stuffed. Why do they insist on using those stupid little disks when no slot-loading cd player can actually use them.
I did actually find this full manual on the net.

Why won't my mac won't recognize a sony cd?

Probably because it's a Blu-ray disc, which Apple doesn't support. Probably a patent royalty argument between Apple and Sony, since you can buy third-party readers and software that let the Mac read the discs. They aren't cheap, again thanks to those patent royalties.
