[quote="DavesComputerTips":3l5xnnh3]Sorry I'm late to the party here...

The problem is the drive formatting and the physical size. Luckily you're running 64bit - 32bit users will be out of luck as they don't have the ability to access the Long LBA drives (not enough addresses).

Look for a BIOS and motherboard driver updates first. If that works you'll be able to access all 3 TB. If it doesn't you will have to partition the drive down to 2.1TB and reformat.[/quote:3l5xnnh3]

Thanks Dave.
I plan to return this 3Tb drive, as i already bought another 2Tb WD-Essentials and image went fine.
Might be something Microsoft should do to fix this problem as i read that lot of users are reporting such errors.
