Anyone want a HDD activity light Tut?
Anyone want a HDD activity light Tut? –
I did one for my Xbox a while back and since the mod is applied dirrectly to the HD, it's most likely compatible with the HDD in my PS2 now(Not sure how the hardware in a PS2 differs in compatibility as opposed to a PC/Xbox). I've been kind of putting this mod off, but if a few people feel it needs to be done or are curious about it, I'll probably do it in the next few days.
I say that'd be nice man! Go ahaid!
I am curious, I saw another board member did this, but no information was supplied. Please do tell!
If you have a look at the power supply when the hdd is being accessed (through the grill next to the usb ports) there is a small diode that flashes, shouldn't be too hard replace it with another one.
hey guys, Ive done this mod to my xbox its simple and easy, I used a 220 ohm resistor, 5mm LED, and wired to the 39th pin to the HDD, is the "ground".
Run + to the red wire on your HDD (you can just solder it to the pad)
heres the TUT from X-S that I used a while back
Yeah. that's about all there is to it. I was just going to take some pics as soon as I can swindle My GF's digicam off her for a few hours.
that'd be a nice tut, if it isnt to hard Ill do it to my ps2
I think it involves tapping some power for the light, and tapping in to one of the IDE wires or hdd itself...I'm not going to do it anytime soon

Whats the orange glow in the ps2 when the hdd is in there, it would be nice to replace that orange glow with a small LED on the front of the ps2.. it already has power and everything wired into it.. just replace it...
Basicly it involved soldering 2 wires to 2 of the IDE pins where they connect to the board on the bottom of the drive.
