Windows 7: 3TB internal HD not installing correctly

3TB internal HD not installing correctly

I have 3 internal hard drives and am trying to add a 4th. The ones that I have are a 1TB (Boot), a 2TB MBR, and a 3TB MBR. When I try to install the 2nd 3TB one and go into Disk Management to create the partitions, it only shows this 4th HD as being 746.52GB! In fact, I have already returned one to the store thinking there was something wrong with the drive but obviously it was not.

Never mind. The answer was on the Installation CD. It referred me to a program called DiscWizard that fixed the problem.
