sorry if i did not mention, but i did leave the thing alone for around a day to dry out, so it did not go all over the place, .. did not work very well when i did that first .. but then put a bit of extra glue in, and let it dry .. and its been running fine for over a few months now .

You know how we all have mates that say "Oh i had one of those but threw it in the bin last week', well, guess what, I had an entire Hitachi drive and I fooked the thing in the bin LAST WEEK!

PCB was fooked but motor and laser were in excellent condition.

It lay in my cupboard for about 2 years.

Sorry mate.
