i dont' see any evidence posted of "incorrect alignment"
for example: if one has an imporoperly reported DIFFERENT alignment from
the alignment needed to mount/read/write from the unix disk
Maxtor EZ-DRIVE were famous for causing a "lost block" drive alignment
issue that caused data lost and alignment issues.
You didn't install any "drive extension software / drive recognition"
disk that came with the drive did you? You'd better be sure it works
with BSD you might cause permanent damage to the drive. and these days:
they likely aren't going to admit it or offer a fix for you as they did
