is that possible like that ?

I do not think the couple of cd or dvd player motors is enough for your system (it may be necessary to think about using a gear reducer ... if you absolutely want to use dvd player )
in order to reduce the friction, you can fix one of the two rods for each axes and use the elasticity of the material to make sort of fixation where one of the rod can move a litle (if the left rod of the y axes is fixed, the right rod should have a little mobility on the x axis) manufacturers use this sorts trick on their cd/dvd roms ;)
