SATA 3TB: unsupported sector size -1548812288.

Hi everyone.

I hava a problem with Debian Lenny server:

uname -a
Linux xxx 2.6.18-4-686-bigmem #1 SMP Wed Feb 21 17:30:22 UTC 2007 i686 GNU/Linux

I connected two new disks to it:

Seagate Constellation ES.2, 3.5'', 3TB, SATA/600, 7200RPM, 64MB

BIOS sees them properly as 3TB drives, in shell I have:

brw-rw---- 1 root disk 8, 32 2011-08-29 19:46 /dev/sdc
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 8, 64 2011-08-29 19:46 /dev/sde

But fdisk doesn't recognize them and demsg shows errors for both:

sde : very big device. try to use READ CAPACITY(16).
sde : unsupported sector size -1548812288.
SCSI device sde: 0 512-byte hdwr sectors (0 MB)
sde: Write Protect is off
sde: Mode Sense: 00 3a 00 00
SCSI device sde: drive cache: write back
sd 4:0:0:0: Attached scsi disk sde

Has enyone had a similar problem? What is this READ CAPACITY? How can
I correct "unsupported sector size" and why it could occur?
