To be honest, there should be at least 2 diodes in that drive - an IR one is used for CDs and the red diode for DVDs. Can you upload a pic? If it was 3-pin it is probably a red diode, but it's better to be safe than sorry. I would personally get an LPC sled or three in a group buy, and a LavaDrive (and test load to set current). There are guides to help you with this. If you need any more help, PM me.
