I need to modify the firmware of the LG GH22NS40 drive because it breaks idle sleep (the computer is supposed to go to sleep automatically after a certain time of non activity.).
When I have no disc inserted the drive will blink every once in a while, maybe checking for a disc inside? This activity will break my idle sleep.
If I have a disc inserted the drive will not have this behaviour and the idle sleep will work great.
So I wonder, is there anyway to remove this by modifying the firmware?
I have dumped the firmware and opened it in a hex editor but it seems a little over my ability to modify this in plain hex
Any help highly appreciated.
