Servo or stepping motor help?

842 4
Is anybody an electronics guru?

I'm trying to make something like a motorized cd tray, that will pop out and back in (vertically lifting about 1.5 lbs) with the push of a button.
I've found lots of info about the motors and how they work, but I have no clue on how to control it or wire it up to a switch/button and make it function. Can anybody point me in the right direction?

Yeah, almost all the little motors I've looked at require you to have a separate card to program them or control them.

I've decided to use a linear actuator instead. I've found one that would be perfect, comes with a little switch to operate it and everything. I'm just waiting on a reply email to see how much it is.
