Could be that it's not focused well enough or it's not getting enough power from the driver... tell us more about your setup and how you put it together...

i did exactly as shown here DIY: How To Make A Laser Diode Driver Circuit - Video

the light that comes out is very powerful but not spreading any heat , its very well focused , tried to adjust the pot , tried everything and it didn't work , could it be that its old ?

anyway the diode is burned now i mistakenly short circuited it x(
fuck diodes !

There was probably something wrong with the diode or the driver to begin with. Even an old DVD diode should smoke tape at least. A diode from a CD burner will smoke tape so an old DVD diode certainly should exceed that.
