What OS are you using? Drives larger than 2T need to be formatted GPT instead of MRB for Windows. I also don't think XP 32 bit will recognize drives larger than 2T.

Are you connecting this as an internal or in some type of enclosure? Some enclosures have problems with drives over 2T.

I only asked about the enclosure beacuse a couple of people didn't mention until near the end of their post. Most of us don't partition that often so here is a link so you can double check http://wdc.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/wdc.cfg/php/enduse
