As I was extracting a diode from my BDR-205, ripping off ribbon cable after ribbon cable, a though came across my mind. If I didn't already rip everything off the board, would it still be possible to still use the drive for everything EXCEPT burning blu-rays? It wouldn't really be too hard to extract the diode without destroying everything else, since it is conveniently in the most unobstructed location on the sled when everything is still put together. I don't know if the drive would freak out when it realized I stole one of its organs and there are wires leading to nowhere.
