Hard Drive Activity Red Light? Tags: Hard Drives Computer HD Storage Last response: August 25, 2006 7:31 AM in Storage Share Storm1234 August 23, 2006 3:02:50 AM Well I think I have figured out why but I want to make sure first. My question is you know how when you have a computer with a IDE harddrive you get the red dot blinking in the front of your computer, that is telling you your harddrive is writing or reading data. Well I now will be using SATA2 hd's will I not have that anymore? So the IDE pins that go onto the mobo do nothing for a SATA2 hd. And if so, is there anyway to get the red dot for a SATA2 hd? Thanks for any information.
