Is there anything to practically do with these or just toss in shred?

Location: Low DOS
Depends:
Always pull the controller. Obviously.
Beyond that you’ll get a small head board with the optical sensors. Peripheral or low telco. One or two low or mid boards.
Steel and stainless. Plastic.
It’s the case that decides for me. If the case/tray is magnesium, aluminium, or manganese: I strip the drive. If it’s steel, it’s shred to me.

The large old cd/dvd drives I usually strip just because they weigh a few pounds and make it worthwhile for the relatively quick dissection.
