Generic PC running FreeBSD 5.4, the PATA controller is an inexpensive 2-port controller from Adaptec. Showing:


atapci0: <HighPoint HPT370 UDMA100 controller> port 0xa000-0xa0ff, 0x9c00-0x9c03,0x9800-0x9807,0x9400-0x9403,0x9000-0x9007 irq 11 at device 1.0 on pci2
ata2: channel #0 on atapci0
ata3: channel #1 on atapci0

ad4: 238475MB <ST3250824A/3.AAE> [484521/16/63] at ata2-master UDMA100
ad6: 238475MB <ST3250824A/3.AAE> [484521/16/63] at ata3-master UDMA100
ad7: 131071MB <ST3300831A/3.06> [266302/16/63] at ata3-slave UDMA100

The machine has four 250G disks working just fine. I added a new ST3300831 300G 7200.8 disk and it's showing like it wouldn't do lba48.

atacontrol is showing that lba48 is supported:

ATA channel 3, Slave, device ad7:

(And the 250G disk in the same channel but as master disk:

Any ideas why the 300G disk isn't working? I couldn't find any references to issues with >250G disks.
