existing partition volume is shown as unrecognized

I cannot explain what happened. I format 3Tb hard drive in GPT partition with one volume of 3Tb.
I do same for another hard drive and bring them in some foreign country at friend's place.
I buy a new usb HD dock and connect the drives on my friend's windows 7 notebook. It found both disks and volumes, but volumes as shown as "not initialized" even the disk manager support GPT partitions.
Desesperate, I reformat one of the 2 disk in MBR partition with a volume of 2Tb and put datas on it.
I come back home after long flight by plane. Now I can access again my GPT partition which I could not access on my friend's windows 7 notebook ... and the partition I made on the other disk in MBR could not be recognized by my windows 7 computer, it shows valid "256 Gb RAW partition" and 2 others not assigned partitions of 1792 Gb and 746Gb. So it seems that my 2Tb partitions has been splitted in one 256Gb ...
How is it possible ? is it a problem with the usb docking system who cannot access more than 256Gb ? I don't think so since the HD dock is uptodate ...
How can I retrieve the datas on the MBR partition ?
Please I want to understand how that's possible ... @_@;
