Default New optical media - Disk activity light stays on all the time.

Hi y'all.

I've just replaced the cdrom & dvdrom in my box with a samsung
cdrw/dvdrom combi & a samsung dual layer dvd-rw.

The drives both seem to work fine, but the problem is that the drive
activity light on my case now stays lit constantly! This didn't happen
with the old drives btw, and I don't think it's hd activity, as the
hd's are quite audible when they are "working".

Board is a Biostar M7NCD, OS is Win XP pro sp2, patched regularly.

Any ideas?

Seems there was something about turning off auto notification that
fixed that or a similar such thing. Might have to do a registry entry
for XP.

Thanks for responding. Could you be more specific:
"Auto notification" for what event? Insertion of a disc?

Thanks.
