No HDD Led Indicates with SATA

Wasn't sure if I should post this under motherboards or hard drives. My case HDD Led activity light isn't illuminating since I upgraded my motherboard and hard drive. Now using Abit IS7 mobo and Seagate 120 gb SATA drive. I've already tested that the light works. Is this normal?

  1. Yes. The HDD LED is only for IDE controller not SATA.

  2. That sucks. Is it that way with all motherboards?
  3. I have a pair of SATA drives in Raid 0 on my A7N8X Delux and my IDE LED works ok

  4. I know it does not work for Abit (as I have NF7-S).
