USB attached ATA drive: wrong size


I bought an 80GB ATA drive and an external enclosure for it.

I connect it on Sid and I see:

SCSI device sdb: 66055248 512-byte hdwr sectors (33820 MB)

running cfdisk /dev/sdb indeed shows 33819.73 MB.

But the face of the disk (Seagate) says 80GB.

Can anybody shed light on this?
