Place in San Jose, CA to get discarded DVD burners free?
I need a diode to make a burning laser (Kipkay's ible), but I don't know where to start when it comes to looking for free DVD burners (from a computer repair shop? where?) to get it from. I also need a LM317T chip for the driver, which I've heard is in the burner.
Does anyone know a place in San Jose CA to get that? Preferably free, as in discarded.
