I'm running an NEC ND-2500A connected to the secondary IDE channel on my Asus A7V133 (VIA KT133A chipset) motherboard.
The HDD access LED turns on whenever the access LED in the burner turns on. I guess this is a 'feature' of the nec writer and/or its firmware.
Anyone else with this drive seeing the same behavior? Any suggestions how to prevent the nec from triggering the HDD LED (aside from cutting a certain ide activity wire in the ide cable) ?
