PC connecting to Time Capsule
- Member Since
- Aug 23, 2009
I am trying to get my PC computers (with vista) hook up to my time capsule. The PC picks up the wifi network just fine. However the PC is failing to pick up the time capsule as a device. This is keeping me from accessing my music and movie files that I keep on the hard drive of the time capsule. Could someone tell me how I can get my PCs to connect to the hard drive of the time capsule?
Thanks alot much appreciated

It's pretty straightforward. Have a look at this thread:
Can Windows see the Time Capsule disk? [Archive] - Mac Forums
Note, to be on the safe side, you may want to install the software that comes with TimeCapsule. This essentially installs the AirPort Utility as well as Bonjour (Apple's networking protocol/technology). I personally have never had to do this and my Windows machines (before I got rid of them) could see my external disks connected via AEBS just fine. TimeCapsule is not all that different than my setup, it simply has the drive internal to the router not external.
Also, making sure that your Mac and Windows boxes are in the same WINS Workgroup is usually the key to this sort of setup.
