To which Wojtek answered:

That's not what Thor wrote about! Have you actually tested that you
can use a disk device with a file system and a block size of
1024/2048, or is it just something that you guess?
I have a HP C1711A M.O. drive with a block size of 1024 - like Michael
Kukat's jukebox (HP 200t). Like Michael, I cannot get my device to
run as a disk device with a file system on it. So once again:
Wojtek, please; have you _tested_ that one can actually use a disk
device with a file system and a block size of 1024/2048, or is it just
something that you _guess_?
