Mini-CD-Rs go floppy

cdr_floppy_disk_35.jpg

CD-R discs that come in the shape (but not the feel) of vintage floppies. They’re those obnoxious mini-CDs, though, so they only hold 200MB… which is, at least, 138.89 times more data than a real floppy can hold. As mini-CDs, make sure not to cram these into your SuperDrive. 4 will cost you $28, which is just outrageous unless you’re looking for a novel way to distribute your chiptunes.

    Ah, Mini-CD in the slot drive. You only learn that lesson once.

    They will probably also wreak havoc on most slot-loading drives.

    I’ve tried to use this sort of odd-shaped disc before (a demo for a game)… made a horrific noise in my laptop’s drive. No thanks.

    But — I haz Wii! Wii haz gamecube discs!

    OTOH, some of my Wii games (looking at you, Twilight Princess) make it sound like a jammed motorboat!

    Uh, what about the old Caleb IT 144MB (yes, one hundred forty-four megabyte) floppy drives: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caleb_UHD144

    You can still pick one up complete with two diskettes, for a whopping USD$1.99 in 2009, here: http://tinyurl.com/9ewlcg

    Feh. If you’re going to go mini-CD, might as well get one of those credit-card-sized numbers that you can boot Linux from.
