Anyone using 3TB harddisk on Linux?
Do you have to use any special PCIe card or vendor supplied drivers?
Is the disk on SATA port or USB port?

Specs for WD 3TB disk says that Linux  needs special PCIe card (hinting that 
it's chipset issue) which ships  with the WD 3TB disk.  But, specs for Hitachi 
3TB disk doesn't mention  about requiring special PCIe card, but does mention 
whole other things  about GUID partition table, UEFI BIOS, etc.
