Does anyone have a broken DVD buner?

Hello everyone,

I’m trying to get a broken DVD burner for a project I’m doing. I’d be willing to buy yours from you for $10 + shipping. If you’re interested, email me at dneumann [at] stanford (dot) edu.


Careful with that laser!


I agree it’s even more powerful then the one in a regular CD burner :eek:

I have a number of them

I found one. Actually, I’m not exactly intending to be careful with it:

Have you tried shining it on the back of a DVD :bigsmile:

I have always wanted to try this out with a standard laser pointer but replacing the LED in it to boost its power, a few seconds of light but what fun you could have for those few seconds till you need to replace the batteries.
