Hi Timothy,

> Does fdisk not like large disks?

fdisk cannot handle drives >2TB (you can use parted to work around
this, using gpt label rather than msdos).
However, this should not affect you, as your drive is well within
fdisk's limits.  Do you have any idea why the system type is Speedstor
instead of 'Linux' ? That would slightly concern me, though you could
always change it in fdisk - make a full backup first, of course.

Kind Regards,
