I'm sure this is a stupid question, but can someone point me to some
documentation that says the MK8009GAH is limited to 1kb blocks?

I was looking at the specs at Toshiba's website
(<http://sdd.toshiba.com/main.aspx?Path=HardDrivesOpticalDrives/1.8-inchHardDiskDrives/MK8009GAH>).
They say the drive supports 156,301,488 logical blocks. 80*10^9 divided
by that number yields about 512 bytes.
