I believe a standard MBR partition table has an upper limit of 2TB per volume. So you can either divide the disk up into multiple volumes (which makes sense on a 3TB drive anyway), or use GPT instead of an MBR. Most of the partitioning tools support GPT nowadays.
The limit is introduced because a standard MBR's partition entry uses a 32 bit unsigned integer to represent the number of sectors ( a sector being 512 bytes normally ). 2 ^ 32 = 4294967296 sectors. That's exactly 2 TB if you multiply it by 512.
