Question can I install a hard disk access light for only mass storage?

my hard disk access light on my front panel does double duty for both SSD and hard disk. Is there a way I can hook up a second light that will report accesses for only the hard disk? Ideally, I could bifurcate both functions so one light could report for SSD activity and the other for hard disk activity. Is that even possible?

Thanks,

the only way I know of to accomplish this is to add a storage controller card with an LED port and only have the SSD controlled by the motherboard.
the ports on the motherboard are all connected via the motherboard.
