Extra Electronic Components

I got an old DVD player, opened it up, and got: -11, 10vdc 47uf caps -6, 16v 10uf caps -5, 10v 220uf caps -6, 6.3v 470uf caps -2, 10v 1200uf caps -2, 16v 820uf caps -2, 10v 1000uf caps -2, 10v 100uf caps -100v 22uf cap -25v 220uf cap ( why is it brown/gold colored?) -Power regulaters (?) *says:C3852, 96 *says:C3852, 95 *says:C3852, 94 (has a heat sink) *says:STR, G6651, 95, 06 Thats about it. What can I do with these?

. That's probably a ceramic capacitor. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ceramic_capacitor
a 220 uf ceramic capacitor? I am not sure I have ever seen one of those. If it is in a canister (electrolytic), some were blue, some were gold, but I never inquired as to why. Maybe a higher grade or lower variance +_
. I dunno. Just going by the color. I guess I should have used may be, instead of probably.
Oh I wasn't trying to pick on you or anything. It is just that I normally ceramics were measured in picofarads (I thought anyways), or is my memory failing me again *sigh*
. All the ceramics I've seen were pF (I think the Wikipedia entry even mentions that they are usually labeled in pF) - I just wasn't paying enough attention. . No problem with the correction. If I'm wrong, I'm wrong. ;)

Haven't you god a LASER diode out of this?

3852 datasheet

Yes, but I destroyed it in the process of removing it.
That stinks, you could've made one of those Maglite burning lazer things.'
No, he called it a DVD player,and you need the laser diode out of a DVD burner to make a burning laser.

Don't assume that a 'burn' capacity makes a LASER diode capable of burning things. After all, they don't melt the plastic component of the discs... L
