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 
in past.
