I think your problem is SNES-Related, because it is patched and you have a console with an other cdvd-handling (if SNES-Station needs a cd in drive and AFAIK non-patched-versions need it. SNES-Station is partially patched and it may crash for several reasons.).
I'm not sure. Sorry.
But I guessed, that you have a patched SNES-Station version and a V9 upwards.
If someone could test the same thing on the same version without dead laser, it will answer your question for sure.
