Sorry I didn't take a close look at your issue, but please check
sector 0xfffffff and 0x10000000.

the on their larger (?) drives seagate doc says use LBA32 for
sectors <= 0xfffffff and LBA48 for sectors >0xfffffff when the
drives actually require LBA32 < 0xfffffff and LBA48 for sectors

I haven't tested yet, but I think these numbers are correct. In
netbsd many seagate drives are in a quirk table, but last I
checked my 400 and 500Gb ones where not.
