Enable LBA in your BIOS.
It's usually located on the hard drive configuration page.

Do what Bill said.

I had a similar problem with my 500 GB drive and windows XP and all I needed was a driver. But since XP SP2 and higher doesn't have this problem I doubt vista does so its probably not an OS or driver issue.
