    Hey guys - apologies if this has been asked before, but I did a search and couldn't find anything.

    I'm picking up a Panasonic VDRD250B camcorder for the imminent arrival of Juzzy Jr. and I'm assuming that, cos the PS3 doesn't use a drive tray, that the 8cm DVD disks ain't gonna get played on it. Am I right? I deffo ain't ain't gonna test it in case an ickle disk gets sucked in there never to to return!

    Cheers.

    I am sure the PS3 can indeed play the 8cm dvd discs, as I have the Wii and the disc system is very much the same and teh Wii handles the 8cm gamecube discs ....

    Only way of knowing is to check the manual or try it .. :thumbsup:

    Well, the manual says you can (provided you don't use an adapter), so I gave it a go and it worked and ejected it safely. Dunno how vital it is that you line the centre hole up with the "PS" logo on the PS3, but I got it straight just to be sure.
