My conclusion depends on that i read about many problems with 3tb (not sure, that i understand them all) and no potential solution for ours (except problems related to the usb controller perhaps), like exclusion principle, so the post of stbxxx finally looked reasonable to me.
So i have no links for your intention, sorry, and I am a complete layman in linux compared with you, but i think its not impossible, that it has to do with Linux Kernel version and chipset. Some manufacturer of 3tb usb disks have in their requirements the number of linux version, e.g. Verbatim: kernel version 2.6. But i have no idea that it helps. Lets ask stb2xxx.

I think the Linux kernel not support 3tb hard from usb
all units with new chipset only support 3tb from sata
Firmware developers cant fix this now
Would be nice if you have some links or info about this?
