You need a multimeter.
setting the laser too powerfull could burn all your discs. Also please note that the more powerfull the
laser setting the shorter it's life span.
Make sure you are contacting the metel and not the plastic, or any other piece of metal.
When you use the multimeter set it to 2000ohms(or 200ohms i forget)
with the laser pointing up, contact bottom right point and the top left point on the pot.
*you can't do this without a multimeter.

Pot tweaking is a bodge carried out to compensate for other problems. It is (sometimes only) a short term crutch to prop up faulty hardware. resistance settings and such are all contrived theory from tweakers. There are no service adjustments listed for these pots in service literarture for DVD drives. They are factory set and thats the way they should be left.
If you tweak it too far you WILL NOT burn the discs (not sure where that one was pulled from) you could however do permanent damage to the laser, even running for only a few seconds. If you do the laser is history even if you put the pot back to the original setting.
Perform this at your own risk.

Maybe it's one of those Techie urban legends, but I have read it in several guides... such as the one listed on llama.com

It must be like one of those things where someone says it happened and as time goes on it becomes set in stone.
The laser will die within seconds before it could burn a disc (don't forget the disc is not static either)
Also the Laser could in theory be outside Class 1 spec if tweaked.
I would get a laser or a drive they are reasonably priced now and widely available.
