AD-7241S: laser on when tray open?

Hello,

Just got a new drive and noticed something special that i haven’t seen in other drives. When I open the tray I see a red beam going from bottom to top inside the drive. In other drives I see no beams when tray is open. Do you get the same effect with AD-7241S or other NEC/Optiarc drives?

Hi and welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

That red light should be lightscribe laser, so it is normal :slight_smile:

Thanks for your reply. This must be a feature of NEC. I can’t see any lights inside my LG lightscribe drive.

It’s normal, I’ve seen it in some of my LS drives as well. Some probably bury it well enough you never see it.
