Welcome to the forum,
10mw is a very weak laser. you need a laser from a dvd burner, those can power from 80mw-300mw
you also shouldnt hook it up directly to the batterys.

You shouldn't work with lasers in the nude. You could burn something important.

Also, don't listen to kipkay or any other random person on youtube or metacafe, most people who post those videos either don't know what they're doing and they give you instructions on how to kill your diode, or they are experienced people making a video for other experienced people and provide no explanation what they're doing.
I suggest you lurk here for a while and just read as many posts as you can for a long while before you try again... You really do need to make a driver circuit if you want to have any hope of using your laser more than once without killing it.
