Is your system acting slow. There may be something running that i constantly accessing the HDD. ctrl+alt+del and check the processes to see if anything is using alot of the CPU

Is the H/drive showing signs of activity, or is it just the light staying on?

no, no programs are running and there is only 2% CPU being used so its just the light playing up????

Has this always happened or is it a new problem? If so have you added/removed any software or hardware? Can you hear the HDD working or is it really just the light?

ever since i added an extra CD drive to my computer, the light just stays on but there is no HDD activity

That's the problem, VoG™ will sort it for you!

Check that the cable is the right way round.
