    Does anybody know how to connect HDD LED on front case panel when the K7T266
    Pro board is configured to use two Maxtor 40 GB hard drives on IDE3 and IDE4
    with RAID, and CDRW and DVD drives on Primary (IDE1), nothing is on
    secondary (IDE2)?

    Is there anyway I can make it work? I don't think the newer hard drives
    still support LED connector on the drive anymore - like the old old days.

    Thanks for any help!

    If you've already tried swapping the connector the other way round on
    the MB pins and it didn't work, it looks like you're stuck. If you
    have a rummage through this forum you'll see that lots of folks have
    had the same problem as you. It SHOULD work just fine. With many MSI
    RAID boards, it just doesn't. On mine (KT3 Ultra-ARU) it does work,
    but I know it doesn't work for many others. I've never seen an answer
    to this problem.

    Maybe you'll get lucky if you post this one on the MSI forum?

    Sorry, the K7T266Pro board does not have a RAID HDD LED connection jumper.
    MSI introduced a jumper for the K7T266Pro2 board series and later. My
    K7T266Pro2-RU has it, luckily.
