3.3 Device capacities greater than 7.9 GB

The apparent capacity of the INT 13 interface is 16,514,064 sectors. However, there is a bug in some Operating Systems which prevents using the full INT 13 capacity. Devices that report more than 15,481,935 sectors in words 60 and 61 of the IDENTIFY DEVICE command data require additional support for addressing their full capacity. The limit of the conventional INT 13 interface is described in Table 1 . The Enhanced INT 13 functions described in this technical report allow full accessing of the device, up to 264 sectors. Int 13 Extensions will allow access beyond 15,482,880 sectors.
