Hello, all. I am in search of a computer dvd drive that I can use in place of a Nintendo Gamecube disc drive.
I have seen a pinout list for a CD drive on this site, so I thought someone could help me out with a DVD pinout.

Therefore, I am wondering if:

1) Anyone knows of a drive that would work for sure
2) Knows the pinouts for any slim dvd drives (I'm not sure, but it would make sense that all dvd drives would have pretty much the same pinouts, slim or not)
3) Knows how I can find the pinouts for a dvd drive (not only the ide/ata, etc but also the laser pinout)
