HDD blinking in game

Hi everyone!

Quick and probably stupid question, but my HDD light is constantly blinking during games such as BF3. Is this normal behaviour?

Furthermore, even at idle, the HDD is blinking away...

I have a Force 3 60gb corsair(windows 7 installed) and a WD 2TB black (game/music storage).

    If you have only one hard drive, it's completely normal. Windows has numerous background tasks that perform I/O to the OS drive on a more-or-less continuous basis. It's not a lot of I/O (i.e., it's a small amount of data), but it is going on all the time.
