    I apologize for delay.

    According to LOGs and Info the HDD capacity is correctly recognized.
    But (!!!) 3TB drive could not be correctly detected in WinXP while it is Basic MBR Disk.

    Please try to convert the drive to GPT:
    * run GPT Disk manager
    * select Convert to GPT wizard
    * select Seagate drive and convert it.

    Then run create Partition wizard to correctly create new partition on GPT drive and make sure that new partition could cover the all 3TB drive.
