Default 52x CD-RW or 20x DVD-RW?

Heya,

My [user]name is Mptp, and for now, I'll probably stick to using that. =D
I've been lurking these forums for a while now, learning what I can, and now it's time to post, I guess.
I hate to make my first post as a request, but I've done a little reading, and I doubt that I'll be able to help anyone or offer useful experience/conversation until I've at least built my first laser.

I live in Australia, so it's necessary for me to get my diode out of a burner, and I'm not sure which is my best option.
I have access to a 20x DVD-RW burner, and a 52x CD-RW burner. From what I understand, the DVD-RW burner will have a shorter wavelength than the CD-RW, but even though the speed of the CD-RW burner is much higher than that of the DVD-RW, from what I've read, the power output won't be much different.
I couldn't find any direct comparison of these two types of LD, so I suppose my question is if I had to take apart one of these two burners (I sort of have to choose), which one is my best bet?

Thanks. (I'll try to be more helpful once I've built my laser. =])

A DVD burner will always be more powerful than a CD burner.
