Appreciate your reply. But to clarify. My question the activity light stays on with the cdr or cdrw disks in it whether the drive is activy or idle. So is this normal.
If a regular program disk is put in and not being accessed the light stays out.
Other words if I put a cdr or a cdrw disk in the drive do no writing to either disk or there is no accessing of either disk. The drive it is idle. The light stays on. Just by putting either cdr or cdrw disk in the drive and letting it spin up and then closing the window that pops up. the light stays on. The drive is doing nothing. Is this normal
So is this normal.
If I have not made it clear of what happening let me know. Will try and answer any question you have in another way.
