Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

The OCE CM4520 is advertised as 'equivalent to Konica Minolta C450':

which is not to be taken as fully authoritative, since it applies to a photo of one as equivalent to the other.

And no, the toner supplies look as if they couldn't possibly be used in the other type of copier... this is the toner cartridge for the OCE CM4520:

and this is the toner cartridge - much different in shape as you can see! - for the Konica Minolta C650:

So I guess we could sum it up that the two model lines you are asking about, though somewhat similar superficially, are quite different enough inside, in the print engine, that you cannot use supplies from one in the other, usually.

The comparison, note, was more or less that, "OCE copier of this model, may be compared with K-M C650, rather than compared with a Xerox such-and-such'. In other words, resemblance between the two, rather than identity or 'identicality'.
