Default dd: end of device

I'm trying to UFS-format a disk, but whenever I try to use dd, I get this:

$ sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/da0 bs=1k count=1
dd: /dev/da0: end of device
1+0 records in
0+0 records out
0 bytes transferred in 0.000768 secs (0 bytes/sec)
It's a PATA drive connected via an IDE-to-USB adapter. What could be wrong?
