FC3: Usage of IDE-USB-Adapters on ASUS K8V SE Deluxe with an 80GB IDE Disk

I have an ASUS K8V SE Deluxe MB, and I attached an 80GB Samsung IDE Disk
via an IDE-USB-Adapator at the front usb connector.

Problem: Partitioning the DISK by cfdisk is OK (1 primary, spanning over
the whole disk). But formatting with etx2/ext3 or xfs hangs up, after
about one 3rd of the disk is formatted (mkfs.ext2/3/xfs).

mkfs.vfat is OK.

Kernel: 2.6.10 (Vanilla).

Any help is appreciated.
