About two weeks ago I purchased a Lite-On 48x model 125W from newegg to replace my Lite-On 32x that I also bought from newegg. Now I am having concerns over it. First of all, the LED on the front constantly blinks unless I uselessly eject the tray and only when it goes back in does the LED go off. It’s rather annoying to have it constantly flashing like that. The second caveat is that I could get a newer 126S from newegg and simply flash it to 52x. The drive still burns CDs perfectly at 48x regardless.
So what should I do? RMA it, sell it on ebay, or just suck it up and deal with it?
Btw, here is a quick video demonstrating the crazy blinking LED.
