Disk /dev/sda: 33.8 GB, 33820284928 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 4111 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
fdisk also gave a warning,
"The number of cylinders for this disk is set to 4111.
There is nothing wrong with that, but this is larger than 1024,
and could in certain setups cause problems with:
1) software that runs at boot time (e.g., old versions of LILO)
2) booting and partitioning software from other OSs"
I also have a post asking about hdparm errors from this Maxtor drive:
edit: I also tried to put the jumper on the "Limit Capacity" setting and retried the "setmax -m" and setmax -d" commands, and there was no change. It still shows up as 33GB.
