What a wonderful answer! +1 already and, if no better one comes along, I will accept it as well. I will try looking at the direction you suggested.

@Axel Knauf Even trivial questions are good one, because one never knows if some tiny detail slipped my attention, so +1 for that. The answer, however, is that yes - I am running fdisk and dd as root.

@larsks No, there isn't any additional dmesg output along with the error from fdisk. When I issue od -N 128 /dev/sdc I receive this single-line error message: od: /dev/sdc: No medium found.
