MiniMax Hard Drive - Possible to switch the front light off?


Well-known Member
Hi all

Just taken delivery of a MiniMax 1TB drive to stack under my Mac Mini. I have just started the transfer of a load of data and have noticed that the lit "1" symbol on the front is flashing when the disk is being written to. Question is simple, can I switch it off? Its going to get on my nerves if I keep seeing that flashing away when I am watching a movie that is stored on the drive!

Anyone know if its possible?

I;ve never found a way. you could use silver tape to try and cover it up.

it does go out if you sleep/turn off the mini (and you are connected via usb - if you use firewire it never goes out), but my mini is on 24/7
