Question about AOpen Computers & Internet
Sorry to inform you that this is not realistically possible. You would not only need to swap out the lens, but also the laser. These days you can pick up a store brand dvd player for about $20 brand new. I imagine if you looked hard enough and sourced a dvd unit that would fit the in the ps1 case and worked on the supplied voltage of the console it COULD work. But, you would be spending $100+ on parts and having a nightmare of a time retro fitting a dvd laser unit that was not made for that system.
Moral of the story... Just buy a cheap DVD player and keep the PS1 around for memory. Or maybe sell the the PS1 for $20 and buy a DVD player :)

You could also just buy a ps2 and have a DVD player and PlayStation in one and still be able to play your ps1 games :)
