Strange light problem

well the problem is whether i turn on or restart my computer, the light on my 451s always stays red, and when it tries to read discs, it blinks between orange and red…O_o
but after i burn something, everything returns normal… i’ve tried flashing it with several firmwares with no success…

everything still works fine, its just that the light is annoying at times… :sad:

There is a “Fix the ‘dead drive’ blink/Enable cross-flashing” option in Codeguys’ latest OmniPatcher. Try that on your 451s and see if it can solve the light problem. :slight_smile: :wink:

This isn’t the kind of blinking light problem the OmniPatcher is designed to solve. The kind that OP solves is the kind that disables your drive completely…

I’ve never heard of this problem before. Strange. :confused: Try the drive in another computer, if you can. This will help rule out software and system configuration problems. If it exhibits this same problem in another computer, then I think your drive’s light may be defective…
