Re: 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?


See you guys aren't watching.
Where did you put the master/slave jumper?
This disk (Seagate: ST380211  Model: 0A) does not mark the pins.
And... I had it on the wrong set of pins!
Now it reads:

SCSI device sdb: 156301488 512-byte hdwr sectors (80026 MB)

Watch out! This'll be on the test!
