Actually I've tried this with my 4 oz machine.Using 6-8 oz packs. Best result comes from using the packs designed for it.To combat the problem you speak of I did add 3 washers for a little weight to weight down my lid while popping. I jsut made sure they could slide up the stir shaft. Works great and has really cut down on the unpopped kernels.

I was just sort of curious as to the experiences of other forumites had with this.
I have the Paragon 6oz popper and I frequently use 8 oz packs. It has been working great for me. No more un-popped kernels than usual. When I bought the 6 oz, my kids were both pretty small, but now they both eat quite a bit more and 6 oz is not enough for all of us, but two batches is too much.
Anyway, just curious as to your experiences.
