Just thought I'd share some info in case anyone else needs it. I searched google and couldn't find it so after figuring this out, I thought I'd post it here.
Sony CD-ROM drives obviously have have motors we can repurpose for whatever, however I needed a bidirectional motor control and was able to isolate the driver IC on the board. It is a LB1641.
Here is a link to the datasheet. http://www.onsemi.com/pub_link/Collateral/LB1641-D.PDF
I was able to quickly get this working with my Arduino so if anyone has any questions feel free to ask.
Also, if this information is posted elsewhere forgive the oversight ... I couldn't find it
