Default fdisk, kingston dt101 G2

Hi guys. I need 5 post before I can put my question in a new thread.

I have OpenBSD 4.5. I bought a Kingston DataTraveler 101 Generation 2 (G2) pendrive, and tried to use format with fdisk, but i got this:

fdisk: DIOCGDINFO: Input/output error
fdisk: Can't get disk geometry, please use [-chs] to specify.

I gave -c 1024 -h 63 -s 32 and tried others geometry, but always gave Input/output error when used write in fdisk.

Why? How can use this pendrive? (my collage formatted to ext4 with fdsik in ubuntu, but I want to deploy an openBSD to it).
