Default 10 Pin Laser Diode, salvaged from a DVD burner.

I can post pics if needed, but I figured I would save myself the trouble if somebody knew off the bat. I salvaged two diodes from a DVD burner, and they are not the round diodes I expects, but more oval shaped (Almost like a short crystal oscillator). They have two 5 pin rows, for a total of 10 pins. I have kept the original ribbon cable attached, and there are a few traces that are much larger, I would assume these are power and ground, but have no way of knowing for certain.

Does anybody have experience with these? Also, I have a few round diodes that have a small plastic cube on top of the can opening, are these some kind of lens, and are they needed?

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!

They do indeed! Looking close, it seems as if there are spaces for 2 more pins, but they are not wired in place, or something.

I will try what you did, thanks for the link!
