Default Help in identify harvested diodes

So I just meticulously and carefully took apart my first DVD drive. I have removed all of the optical equipment and diodes and disassembled every other component in the drive mainly because I felt it would simply be in bad form to have stuff still untouched and also because I don't know when I will be able to get my hands on another drive. So I have the diodes, but I need to identify them. Does anyone know, or can point me in the direction of finding out, what lasers come in a:
LITE-ON IT CORP. DVD/CD REWRITABLE DRIVE MODEL SHW-160P6S?

I would be very grateful. I have tried looking for stickies. I have tried looking for threads with the same model drive. I even tried google. Thanks in advance!

Is there any way to judge it by which one reflects from the PBS cube and which one goes straight through?
