Well, I've never seen that before, Chris, so "Well spotted!", I'd say.

Been there, done that, get the T-shirt.

Tested on A600 with an ordinary LED under the vents for a short time. Worked too! Ditch the circuit because I didn't used a proper circuit board.

the only problem is some users do not want ti cut out a extra hole for the LED. one way around this is to changed the orginal LED for dual colour LED.

i found a way too add tri-colour LED in one slot where the other two slots (A1200) were dual colour,so i ended up with something like this.

no extra holes added in my old project.

Hardrive/PCMCIA dual colour (orange/purple)
floppy drive read/write access dual colour (blue/white)
power/audio filter tri-colour (red/yellow/green) NOTE: red now indicates A1200 is on. green A1200 power supply is plug in the back of the A1200 the computer is off.

Just tag it on to the one side of the floppy LED. This is what I done for my DVD-RW. Got fed up of no knowing if it was reading or not.

I wonder how the Zappo PCMCIA hard disk controller worked then because that used to make the HD light flash when it was being accessed! (no mods done on system board) :s

There was a program for CD32, that would make the Power LED flash, so you knew the HDD was working on the SX1.
I used to use it alot until I killed my SX1, .

err the floppy drive read/write access LED indicator is in real time. when it starts to write the LED change colour in real time. in other words when writing it flicks between blue & white.

when it reading it stays one colour (blue).

Aye, tis cool your led setup.
I remember Anemos doing something simular.

If you dont fancy ripping stock leds apart, my way works just aswell as floppy is hardly used.
It still flickers one side even when floppy light is on.
