What kind of partition table is it?  MS-DOS partition tables have a 2 TB

Hadn't thought of that, doesn't look good. -Ben

sudo fdisk -l /dev/sdc1

Issue number one -- don't use fdisk, as it doesn't support devices that big. Use parted instead:

parted /dev/sdc
mklabel gpt
mkpart primary ext2 0 11TB

where you may have to sub some other value for the "11TB" in the mkpart line -- I forget the exact syntax.
