CD burner laser diode emmit IR. You cant see it with naked eye. It can burn your eye for sure. Better go for dvd/blu ray laser diode as Zerogx recomended.

Iremember another webiste doing this and they made it clear that a higher power laser is needed, so much so that they deliberately overloaded the laser to light the match; the laser didn't last too long either. I seem to remember from the 1980s that penpointing lasers gretaer than 5mw were banned as that was powerful enough to cut retinas but still notlight matches -so keep themaway from everybodies eyes.
