Help - Remote eject switch for slot load DVD drive - Page 2

post #11 of 12
This is fantastic, thanks OP for posting and thanks to all of the guys helping out on this!
I had done the same thing on a standard optical drive but design factors in my build may mean that I will have to use a slim drive.

as a full time solder monkey I would suggest you ignore the comment that you should use nothing more than a 15 watt soldering iron. I use a professional 55 watt soldering iron with digital temperature control. you can learn the proper way to solder on youtube. I hand solder packages all the way down to TSSOP, 0604 resistors etc. no I don't kill them with heat. I would probably do worse on a 15watt iron as the dwell time is increased, the solder may not be %100 beyond the plastic zone, and the board soaks more heat. ROHS solder is lead free so melts at higher temperatures. don't believe everything you read on the internet!
