Windows 7: The blinking light of annoyance fix, can anyone help?

I am back. The drive is as was, light continues to haunt me, but on the positive side, when the computer is off, it's just the light that is on, the disk is NOT spinning. I may have to live with an external drive that has a light that never goes out. The light of annoyance ? I did notice that this 2tb is slightly bigger in MB's than all my other 2tb drives, not sure if that is of any significance. I am thankful to you guys for taking the time to help me, but this is just a really strange case I must admit.

After reading this guide, I understand a little more and I am not worried about it being a MBR Disk vs a GPT disk. I have both gpt capable disks and dynamic disks Every disk I checked has a MBR in properties when you click the left side in Disk Management. . Convert MBR Disk to GPT Disk

LAN activity (blinking light) ... how to?
What I miss with "7" is that the network icon does not show activity, even in the unscientific way that the old XP "two screens connected by a line" thing in the system tray used to do. There may be a way to get "7" to do that... if so, I have completely missed it! ;) Not a deal breaker by...
