Question about LaCie 3 TB Biggest Quadra External Quad Interface RAID Array 301249U
I attached a Lacie Big Disk Quadra 3 TB external hard drive to my XP system. XP only recognizes it as 746 GB. I tried disk management and DISKPART. Not sure why it won't see the entire drive.

One way around is to install Mac Drive on your system. First you format your hdd in HFS+ on a mac platform, with any size you want.Then, after you installed Mac drive on your PC, it will work.

Tips for a great answer:
click start control panel administrive tools ,computer management ,device manager look through all of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark ! or red x
right click to reinstall drivers or
if you can see your usb but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver
sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable,
just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again,
check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems also make sure the computers Ram and Cmos battery are securely seated
if this fails to fix the problem
you might have to install a usb 2 or 3 card they are cheap and easy to install you can buy these on Ebay very cheap
hope this helps you
