To the gods…
I just bought this drive today, and I noticed something out of the ordinary
When the drive is “seeking” (example: when removing (but NOT when completely ejected, then light is off) a CD, or inserting a CD), the light is a SOLID green color. When it’s done seeking, the light turns off. When actually reading the cds, the light acts just like it’s supposed to (we all know about that). Burning is a flashing green light, which is normal too, from doing search.
But why the solid green light when seeking?
Press the “Eject” button and the light turns solid green until the cdtray is completely ejected. Close the drive tray, and the light is solid green, until the CD is fully initialized, or if there is no CD in the drive, the light goes outshortly after the tray closes.
But–shouldn’t the light be BLINKING/flashing green?
My 166S behaves as you would expect…but not the 1633S.
Note I flashed firmware from BS0K to BS0S, and still the same thing happens.
Can a knowledgeable person explain this? Or is my drive “DOA”?
