    Unfortunately a mac will only take full size DVDs. If you do attempt to plave a mini DVD into the drive you will most likely get it stuck. That is one of the biggest problems with slot load DVD drives.

    Exactly what jselden said. To solve the problem you’ll need to buy an external tray loading DVD drive such as this one: http://amzn.to/x7mo7n

    So there isn’t an USB adapter cable that would work with the red, white, yellow plugs?

    You might be better off just getting an external DVD drive. Which is what I think Mark was suggesting above. Doing a screen grab wont be much fun and will take a while.
