Hehe.. now I know what people saw when they tought they saw a UFO. =P But it made me think a little.. if I buy this drive then I have to buy a dog and train him to catch the discs in mid air and bring them to me. This would be cool. =P
Anyway.. I heard a cd drive in the past had the flying disc "feature" for real.. but it wasn't listed in the specs. =)
BTW. doesn't Philips firmware change the behavior of the leds.. maybe it would solve the problem for El_Mariachi_X.
