Helloo....:wave:. I'm very new into the world of Laser.. I have not got much knowledge on the Laser.:cryyy:. I hope you all friends will help me to make a laser light.:) [['KID' means I'm a kid to the world of lasers,, I'm 22yr!!]]

I have a

1. Samsung CD-Re-writable Model SW-252 having Write Speed: 52x, ReWrite Speed: 32x, CD-ROM Read Speed: 52x.

2. Samsung DVD-ROM drive Model TS-H352 have 16 x read speed for DVD media and a 48 x read speed for CD media.

So, what should i do next??

First you should start reading. None of the diodes your drives have are good. If you really want to build a DIY laser, start by reading the tutorials and FAQS on the forums and then come back ;)

I would tell you first that your entering a realm that your parent or parents need to be involved with... lasers can be very dangerous please seek the help of an adult.

Come back with your guardian or such and try again, nobody here wants to help a child no less to potentially blind themselves or others. This is a rewarding hobby please just start off right. jander6442

This question has been answered twice in this thread already. Re-read what has been written to you above.

Peace,

@ ajufsd:

Relatively speaking, yes, but in the cd burners, "burn" is a way to say (slang ?), not meaning real burn ..... here, and for laser environments, "burn" is used in the sense to really burn items, focusing the beam .....

Where you talk about CD writers, the diode used for this is an infrared diode, so practically invisible, and also have few power for make a decent "burning" laser, also focusing the beam.

You have to get a DVD burner, possibly like 18X or similar, in which you can find a diode with enough power for make a decent pointer that can also burn, focusing it properly (dvd uses red diodes) ..... or for the bluray (violet, 405nm), you need to use a blu-ray burner .....

Infrared units, like the CD writers ones, have just not enough power (other than being invisible, so also more dangerous for the eyes)

Hmmm.... I would think at 22 years old he won't really need his
parents or a guardian to build some Lasers...:whistle:

But he will require a bit of research and reading before he even
attempts a build....:cool:

CD readers or writers are infrared. DVD readers or writers are red, however only the ones used in the DVD-RW burners are good to be used for high powered laser pointers ;)

@HIML9: correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought they must be DVD-RW, not only high speed normal DVD writers. I always say "writers" instead "burners" to avoid confusion ;)

He edited his post. The OP did NOT contain any age info. It just said "kid."

Peace,
