[QUOTE=Mike89;2166589]Maybe no one else has noticed this yet because they are not paying attention, heh heh.[/QUOTE]
i feel your pain, you are not alone (in this being a big deal to you, it drove me nuts too) - i had an LG SATA burner that coupled with an NForce 650i board did the same thing.
the only way to stop the blinking light for me was to disable the LG in device manager (XP) until I was ready to use it - at least you can cycle the tray to stop the HD light from constantly blinking, that’s better than what i had to do
i now have a new mb - Giga EP45-UD3R and an Optiarc 7200-S - no probs with the HD light thankfully!
