Laser pointers Answered

Hey guys, I can imagine this question being asked a few times, but google did not provide good results.

ANyways, I have a CD drive, CD burner, and DVD drive and wanted to build myself one of those nifty laser pointers that can burn matches almost instantly. Which one will have the strongest laser to do this with? I'm assumign either the CD burner or the DVD. so which should I tear into?

Dvd burner has the strongest laser, uses a shorter wavelength of light thats more energy dense

I don't have a DVD burner available to sacrifice. CD burner or DVD drive are my only options.
