Default Need good driver board for DIY DVD red burner

I'm new to all this stuff but I wanna build a laser from DVD burner.
I heard that I definitely need a driverboard (contrary to most video instructions) or my diode will die in a matter of seconds.
I'd like to make a fairly long lasting laser, one that doesn't die after a week or so.
So I need a good 3V driver board which drives around 200 mA. However, I wouldn't like to make my own driverboard.
Can you recommend me some flashlight or so apart from Dorcy (because I cannot buy one so easily), preferably from DX. I would also prefer powering it with AA or AAA batteries.

I know I'm a bit picky, but I'd be grateful if someone could help me out.

There are some people, I'm sure they'll read this thread and drop you a PM, who sell premade drivers for a very reasonable price.

All you need add is batteries and a diode.

They should be around any time now...

Here is a flaslight that many people have used to make one.
http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.4171

And heres how you can make it.
http://www.laserpointerforums.com/fo...num=1186966870

But even with that you will still have to make your own driver, there not near as hard as you think there very easy, i new next to nothing about electronics when i made one but since all those pictures of it i made it easily.

Heres the driver im talkin about.

I like your driver board, but I suppose the shipping to my country (Croatia, Europe) would be $10 or so, am I right? And this is too much for delivery...

yeah, it would have to be. I might be able to squeeze it down to like $5 but the downside to that is less safety in shipping...
Go build a Daedal driver then!
