CD RW LED keeps flashing


The LED on my CD RW drive flashes every second.
The LED on my DVD drive does not.

The LED on the CD RW only flashes when I am logged in. When the kdm logon scree is up there is no flashing.

If I mount a cd in it it stops flashing unless i start accessing the files.

If I then unmount the CD the flashing remains stopped.

This is annoying me but I don;t suppose it is doing any harm

Any ideas what is going on?

Here is /etc/fstab

/dev/hdb3 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/hdb2 / ext3 defaults 1 1
/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows vfat user,umask=0 0 0
/dev/hdb1 /mnt/winlin vfat user,umask=0 0 0
/dev/hdb6 /mnt/hdb6 ext2 user,noauto 0 0

KDE control centre
KDE components
Service manager
KDED Media Manager unchecking seems to have stopped it.

Have I lost anything by stopping this media manager? If it is just CD playing autostarting I can live without it.
