When the 1233n is not installed the HDD light behaves normally. When it is installed the HDD light remains on.

I have tried two different LED sets.

Anyone know what the reason could be?

Not sure if the 1233n is the issue. Are you using a CF card adapter as your HDD? If so, Did you get a really cheap one off eBay or Amazon? If so, some of those have issues because the LED isn’t connected properly to the activity signal on the adapter, or at least not in a way that the Amiga translates it properly. A small jumper wire installed to the right place on the board fixes that.

Thanks for the response. The CF card is not a cheap one and I have never had issues until I installed the 1233n which is working completely fine. I have no idea why this would change the behaviour of the HDD light.

I have also had a 1207 expansion board in this Amiga 1200 and that does not exhibit the same issue. The 1233n is making something happen.

Best report it in the iComp forums.

If it’s an issue (read: bug) in the firmware those are the people who need to know.
