Hi

I'm trying to create an activity light ofr each of my current 4 but planned 8 sata hard drives. I will need two LED's per hard drive.

I'm not aware of a motherboard that does this and I don't want to spend a fortune on one that does.

Does anyone know of a way of attaching an LED to the hard drive to give hard drive activity?

Thanks

Location: Wanting to be at these forums, but not as active as they
The really old (when they were only a few megs big) hard drives had the Activity light connected directly to itself rather than the mobo. A few new HDDs have an LED on the board itself.

Not sure if you want to go to these extremities, but you could solder the wires onto the board.
