No, you'll need some additional things like a driver, a focusing lens for the diode and something to house it in.

No!!! you will not be able to build a laser with the parts you have on hand.

Unless you happen to have:

a lens
module
heatsink (drilled to fit module)
driver and a
propeer power supply.
laying around

Aixiz modules include the lens and a focusing ring. You buy/build the driver depending on how you want to power your laser. So the steps would be:

i take the diode out of the dvd burner
fit the diode in the Aixiz module
connect the completed module to the driver after you've tested your current using a dummy load
and viola

It's a bit more complicated than it seems. Here's a good thread you should read to get you started.
