Modding a HD to accomodate a LED - 09/02/06 07:46 PM
I have two IDE hard drives, but none of them have external connectors for a(n) LED. i've checked the spec sheet from the manufacturers, but the only thing I might be able to mod are the pins on the IDE port themselves. There's a separate pin for read and write. Would I be able to connect either one of these to a wire leading to an LED with the other wire leading to a ground pin (without blowing up the drive)? Anything I would have to look out for ahead of time? Thanks for the help.
