At work I am using Freenas to build a network storage server.
It has 2 160 GB sata hard drives and it boots to a 1 GB usb drive.
It is a Systel 4232
I recently noticed that the hard drive LED is always on.
I unplugged both hard drives from power and data but it continued.
next I unplugged the USB drive and nothing seemed to help.
I am not sure what to do to fix this
any help would be appreciated.
I do not have any pata hard drives in my computer. I do have a dvd drive but there is a notch in it so it can only be plugged in one way.
From the moment I turn on the computer the hard drive light is on, if I am going through the Bios or booting from the usb drive.
I found some documentation on where the LED cable should be plugged into so I am sure that it is in the right place. when I unplug the cable the light stays off but when I plug it in the light comes back on. There is never any blinking it is just on or off all the time.
