    Subject2048 byte/sector problems with kernel 2.4

    I recently acquired a 1.3GB MO drive. When I use small (230MB and 540MB)

    MO disks which have normal 512 bytes/sector it all works flawlessly but
    as soon
    as a put in a 1.3GB disk which uses the 2048 bytes/sector format it all
    wrong. As soon as I write something to the disk by issuing a cp command
    the command
    just eats 99% CPU time and does not write a single byte to disk (it
    seems). Is this a
    known problem? When I check the kernel logs it seems that the sector
    size is correctly
    identified. The problems occurs with both the ext2 and fat filesystems.

    I also tried it with 2.2.18 there it works but it seems to be utterly
    slow. I'm using kernel 2.4.2(XFS version to be precise).

    Any solution to this problem?
