    The maxtor drives

    XxYYYyZ

    where
    X is a number
    x is a letter
    YYY is the capacity (040 for a 40G)
    y is a letter
    Z is a number.

    When Z = 2, the disk is single platter, and COULD have been 4 times as
    large by adding three more platters. That adds up to 160G so the

    Xy040z2 drives will certainly do LBA48.
