Picked up a spare PC-FX HOP-E1 Laser (sounds like a bad beer) and had it reading CD-Rom (burned games) for all of 10 seconds, and hasn't been able to read them since.  Audio CDs boot instantly, I tried tweaking the pots.. am I being too fussy with the back-ups?  It's a derelict system I picked up in Japan and had high hopes.  The laser I bought wasn't cheap at $26USD hoping to find a replacement on a budget if nothing prevails

I think someone mentioned previously that that replacement lasers can be hit or miss.  I know I've had mixed luck with them too, I bought like 15 Saturn ones in bulk from china and maybe only 2/3 of them work.
