DealExtreme "dangerous"? It takes forever for the stuff to arrive, but my experiences have been generally positive.

I think he means dangerous because you want to buy one of everything ;D Components for too many different projects... LEDs, flashlights, lasers, etc

My wife asked me this weekend if there was any way that she could have a DVD player in her computer. She asked, &quot;Can we get these? Could you put one in for me?&quot; I answered, &quot;Yes&quot; and took one out of the closet. :-[

She was NOT impressed that: 1) I would have these &quot;valuable&quot; units just sitting around. 2) That I had not put one in for her already. and 3) that I would be tearing up what she was coveting just to build a &quot;toy&quot;. All is well now though

Peace,
dave

is that the same as this?

how efficient will it be?

and is there anything else in regards to this project that i'll need? resistors and such? any special considerations?

I can host a group buy of them for the international people if interested. I do *A LOT* of int'l sales and am experienced in this field.

Would ask $30 for the head DELIVERED would add about $5 more to extract and ESD safe the diode for you.

Interestingly the drive still works fine for CD's and normal DVD's if you carefully extract the blue laser

Yup a flat blade jewelers screw driver and an exacto blade is all it takes to salvage the violet diode minimally destructively.

Also found out the mfr's revoked the HW key for these drives for hd-dvd playback! In short they really are good only for the diodes! I really don't get the point of revoking a HD-DVD key on an IDE device since the playback would be similar to normal DVD anyway. Sounds like yet another way for greedy movie mafiosos to squeeze a few more dimes out.

HD-DVD sucked to begin with, Now we know why they are so cheap! ;D

Anyway they are nice to add fast dvd and cd playback to freebie systems I build to donate to schools, homeschoolers etc.

Not meaning to jack the thread or anything, but it's certainly possible to do a cr123 host. The lower limit in logical size is the driver board, and I managed to fit the lava drive into my cr2 host, which over all is shorter than 1 aa battery, and a little wider. Check my post if you're interested.

I'm shamelessly posting... only because I want to have 10 posts lol so I can post links and PM.
