For some reason these drives don't always show up as 2TB but instead as 1TB.. I RMA'd one drive and the second did the same thing on 2 other computers.. SO I figured after an unsuccessful search on google that it wasn't the OS but instead the drive.

Samsung makes great drives but god their support site sucks balls. I finally came across this page

http://www.samsung.com/global/business/hdd/support/downloads/support_in_es.html

for some reason the drive wasn't set to it's native size, so using the utility above I recovered the correct size and sure enough it worked.

I hope this link saves someone time and a headache.

Where did you buy the HD204UI drives from? What was their manufacture date?
