Howto Turn the Memory Stick light off on Sony VAIO notebooks in Feisty

Sponsored Link
If you are using VAIO VGN-FS660/W with Feisty fwan and the Memory Stick light on the front panel would always stay on. If you don't use it, here's an easy way to turn off.

Warning: This may disable other memory card readers.

Open terminal and enter the following command

lsmod | grep tifm

Now You need to edit the blacklist file using the following command

sudo vi /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist

At the end of the file, enter each module listed on the lsmod output one at a time with "blacklist" proceeding it. Here's mine:
# Disable Memory Stick
blacklist tifm_sd
blacklist tifm_7xx1
blacklist tifm_core
blacklist mmc_core4

Save the file and exit,Now you need to reboot your system
