CD/DVD internal drive case material? Steel?

  1. Dec 14, 2011 #1
    Hi, I was wondering if anone knew what an internal CD or DVD drive case is most commonly made of. I was hoping to use it to do some welding so am hoping it is steet but not sure.

    if it's an internal cd drive it has a frame
    it's made of sheet metal a type of steel
    it's usually made by stamping it in a die
    to alter it probably takes brazing not welding
    good luck
