    OR! u DON`T destroy a $200 Xbox for a laser and rather just buy a lighter that will do the same things, but costs alot less.

    "If you can`t find a broken HD DVD drive, you can-Now we need somewhere to put the burner..."
    lol, although he did say what you can do to get the blue diode later.

    Destroy an Xbox 360 just to get its laser?
    Why not buy a dvd drive for 1/5 the price?
    Why not buy a laser diode for 1/50 the price?
    Why not get a lighter, as ty651 rightly says, for even less?

    It`s cool how he did it, but who`s going to go through all of that for a crappy toy? I love how the video gets cut. He says "If you don`t have a broken DVD drive, you can..." and then it goes to something else. DARN YOU!! GIVE ME THE SECRET!! lol

    Ok I admit that it`s pretty cool, but I got a laser pen (nothing special, though, but decent) for 5 bucks in spain. Not worth destroying your xbox for. This works the same for any dvd drive (normal ones have red lasers, the hd ones might use blue lasers depending on how new they are. Just get a broke dvd burner from somewhere and take it apart, wire it to 2 aa batteries and you`re all set. for $ 20, instead of $200. Still pretty cool, but very expensive.

    Lol you guys are retarded. you DO NOT have to break an xbox 360.

    It`s simply the ADD ON HD DVD drive for the 360, the one that they are no longer making movies for. So if you don`t have one you can probably find one for $20-$50 max. Dumb asses.

    I kind`ve expected him to completely dismantle the Xbox then say "and now buy a laser pointer and tape it to a water gun!"

    ""if you can`t find an HD DVD drive you can *cuts off*"

    I think the point he`s trying to get across is that while he acknowledges other methods of building the laser, during his turtorial, there are NO ALTERNATIVES!
