I recently came across an old DVD/VHS player.  Is there a way to hook the optical camera from the DVD player to my Arduino UNO board and use it as a camera or other kind of sensor?

I don't think you connected the grounds, Dave.

It isn't a camera, just a photodiode with very close focus.
What did you have in mind?
