DVD Drive reading or writing?

I've just installed a new internal dvd rewriter drive,and after making a couple of dvds,i've noticed the indicator light seems to be reading and writing at the same time.The color for burning a disk is a sort of yellow/orange color,and the reading color is green.But as it is in the process of burning a disc,the indicator flashes from yellow to green,and sometimes stops altogether for a few seconds.Having never owned one of these drives before,i don't know if this is normal.The disks come out fine,so no problem there.Please advise,thanks.

If it works fine just leave it.

Your burning software is probably set to "write and verify".

burns data then tries to read it back off the disk so you see orange burn light then green read light.

If disks ok then leave settings as they are.
