I recenty build a simple Gigabyte P35 - DS3L system. I works perfectly with a WD Sata II hard drive a Seagate IDE HD and a BenQ IDE burner, Intel Core 2 Duo E6750, 4 GB and Windows XP SP2.
Now, when I added a new 20x Sata burner (either Lite-on or Samsung - tried both) The hard drive activity light on the case blinks about once every second. This screws around with the “sleep” mode. Both the machine’s and mine - lol. It just plain bothers me because I get paranoid when I walk by the system and think someone is trying to hack in.
Is this Sata burner behavior Normal or just something specific to my hardware. Do you guys see it in your machines?
