does anyone know if you can use time capsule to back up any windows machines on the network? can it only be used as a router for windows machines or is there some way to partition the harddrive so it will work for both operating systems??

Wondering if you could help in a similar way. I am trying to use the 1TB of HD space of my Time capsule not for Time Machine but as a wireless HD that i can keep all my media. My goal is to be able to keep all my movies, and music on my time capsule and use itunes to keep it managed. Then i use my appleTv to watch my movies. I've tried changing the router to N but the video is still choppy. I am curious if running itunes on TC and linking it to AppleTV would be possible. If not I would love to hear any suggestions.

try this and do the first backup with the ethernet cable , turn off the wireless(Airport) on your macbook.

Open Airport Utility
Click on 'Manual Setup' on the left botton corner of the AIrport utility
On the top you will see 'Airport', 'Internet', Printers, Disks. Here go to disks and you will see your Time capsule's 1TB disk and you will see an option to ERASE. Click that and wait until you are done. This will give you a brand new TC disk.

I dont know about apple tv but I keep all my media in the TC and stream it on my Macbook Air. No problems with that. I dont see why apple tv woudnt work the same way unless the TC is out of range. In that case you can try changing the postions of your TC. And if you live in wireless crowded area try changing the channel on your base station.

you can copy and paste them into your TC. But it would not be restorable using Time Machine.

Could you tell me what setting you have for the base station and anything else you feel is helpful. And just to be clear, you are able to use video media seamlessly with your TC.
