I have searched here and Google and still havent found anything that works for me. I have tried formatting via Device Manager, a W7 OS disk, Gparted, PartedMagic, Acronis, and a couple others and nothing can format this drive into one 3TB section. More over, nothing can even see it as more than a 800GB(ish) HDD. Most Linux distros can tell it is a 3TB in the properties but it will not format correctly.
Have tried in 3 different PCs, Xp and W7 OSs, and every little trick I can think of. Any kick iin the right direction would be fantastic. The drive passes all tests and is a brand new drive. Have two of them and they both do the same thing.
