Weird.. even if it's as simple as opening and closing a drive tray, the HD access light comes on. Is on also on burns.Doesn't do this on the liteon cdrw.
Is this by design, or something odd?
Some system don't like to have the optical drives as master as this violates the ATAPI spec which calls for HDs as master and optical drives as slave. Other than that I couldn't say what is happening.
same here but i don't care as long as it works
Normally the light is not HDD only, but it is IDE channel doing something, so most accesses to IDE devices will be shown.
