Well - stop where you are, since if it is a cd-rom - it will be IR if it is a burner - and a low powered red to boot. DVD burners are where you can find the good diodes to mess with. The diodes in CD-roms are simply not economical to mess with. You can get some neat little mirrors, and optics out of there, though.....
