Samsung SE-S084C: is it possible to disable LED?

vbimport

#1

I have a brand new Samsung SE-S084C unit, but as I’m using it with an media player (in this case, the Xtreamer HD mediaplayer) I would like to disable the drive’s LED when reading discs, because it’s very annoying when watching a movie and the drive is near the TV.
Is there any simple firmware hack to disable the activity LED?

That’s a good suggestion, I will consider it.

Hi,

Something like that. Firmware hacks for TSST drives that go beyond the modifications of C0deKing’s Patch Utility are close to non-existent.

The quickest and best solution is the tape like you said. Shame on me, didn’t remember that simple solution. Looks like when Americans wanted a pen to write on zero gravity, and Russians came with a clever solution: a pencil

But the pencil is not document-proof :smiley:
