I'm having a similar issue with some 3ware cards.  I've got two 8 drive 
RAID5's with 400GB drives.  They don't show up with full space.  The 
only solution I've found so far is to use parted, and give them a GPT 
label which allows all the space to be partitioned.  But this will break 
other standard tools I think... I'm still searching.
