USB drive access light?

I have a Sandisk Cruizer Micro USB flash drive. The blue access light remains on all the time when plugged in. It has negative blinks (turns off for brief moments) when the drive is accessed. But it would make more sense to be off when inactive, and on when being accessed.

As it is, it is difficult to know when it is safe to remove the device after writing to it.

Are their any tips for tinkering with the light control on these drives?
