    Hello,

    I was given what I think is a minidisc. It looks like a cd, only much smaller. It isn't completly round however, as two of the edges are trimmed down. It looks more like an oval now.

    My question is, if I were to buy some of these, can I copy my stuff onto them just like a regular cd? With Nero or whatever, and secondly, anyone know where I can find these items to purchase? Thanks!

    hello

    you can copy onto them if they are writable discs or rewritable discs. ive seen and used some of the discs you described. they are made that way for convience --like the size of your pocket easy to lug around. However they do not hold the storage capacity of 80 minute (800mb) they generally hold anywhere from 150mb - 210mb . also click on this link to see where to get them. http://www.plaza101.com/plaza/search/res/r8174691.html I have purchased them at office max at one time. hope this is a help

    Many people use those as business cards. That is why they are shaped like that.
