How can I get Windows 7 64bit to recognize my 3 TB SATA hard drive? BIOS sees it, it works fine under Ubuntu, but it doesn't show up in Win 7's disk manager / storage tool. [more inside]

I'm using Terminal (Ubuntu 8.04x64) right now to overwrite a 500g external hd with random information. There's been no action aside from a blinking cursor (by itself on a line, not in front of any prompt) since I entered the command yesterday afternoon: [sudo dd if=/dev/random of=/dev/sdc bs=8m]
I understand it's going to take a while to finish. In the meantime, is there any way to monitor the progress of the operation?
