How can I run DC motors found in a CD Rom? Answered

I have a DC Adaptor with variable voltages and I applied the wires to the terminals of the motors but they dont run. Am I missing something. Can they be run by simple adaptors,

needs a special circuit to for turning on and off power to certain coils in sync to get the rotor to turn. This special circuit is called a ESC, or Electronic Speed Controller, which is just the slang name used a lot by the RC hobby for a motor controller. You will need to know how many poles the motor is. Is it 2 phase or 3 phase.

It is a brushless DC motor, basically a 2 or 3 phase AC motor ;)
You need a controller to run them.
Some odler drives have very basic drivers than can be used and a PWM regulates the speed.
Check Google for brushless DC motors and how to run them and you might find what you need.
