Thanks for posting with your question, I’ll be happy to help.
New hard drives have to be initialized before you can partition them- this can be done over USB or “direct” SATA connections.
To do this, the fastest way is to press windows+r, type diskmgmt.msc (the press enter). The window that comes up, Disk Management, will let you initialize and partition the disk.
Further details are here, however let me know if you’ve any other questions:
To be able to use the full 3tb capacity you’ll need to choose the GPT/GUID partition table rather than MBR.
