using regular PC discs with stand-alone CD-Rs

Generally, one can not use IBM formated PC blank CDs to record on a stand-alone(audio-system) CD-R. However, a few years ago I came across an article in an audio magazine which detailed a way in which you could get your audio-system CD-R to read blank PC discs for recording purposes.

Is there anyone out there who could help me with this objective. It would be greatly appreciated.
Possible, not recommended. The trick here is simple. Load a music CDR first and let it read, then slowly pull the tray out manually fingertips under the tray lip, load the PC blank and push forward slowly. You've just tricked the stand alone in believing it is using a music CDR. I believe this usage will slowly screw up the loading tray.
