Having problems with your Acer PC Desktops ?

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 mini CD. Is this because I am doing something wrong or is it just not made to take mini CDs?

Dear Kayty -

\015\012Unfortunately, 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.

\015\012Otherwise, 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.

\015\012Here's a link to an external CDRW drive on ebay to give ya an idea:
