What indicator do you mean and why should it blink?
With "USB/SD" I guess you mean a USB flash drive ("USB stick") resp. SD card? (USB is just a bus - there are USB hard disks, USB keyboards, USB mice and all other kinds of devices that use this bus and that you could want to use - if you write just "USB", it can mean anything).

Blinking an indicator on USB drive is not the responsibility of Sugar, and is generally impossible. The drive itself manages the indicator. No API is exposed.

Blinking the green storage access indicator on XO-1 or XO-1.5 is intended to occur with internal storage access only (not USB), is not yet implemented, and is not the responsibility of Sugar.

If a USB drive fails to activate on an XO, resulting in the indicator not blinking, despite the operating system being active, then this is likely to be a hardware problem.
