Timecapsule as Ext HDD

I've got a time capsule but I'm not currently using it for the internet wireless. Can I just plug it into my mac via the USB on the back of the timecapsule and use it only as an HDD?
I would just try this and see but I don't have a USB to USB connection at my flat just now and I'm a student so I don't really want to spend any money I don't need to!

Okey, here's the great thing about USB male to USB male connectors, there specifically very rarely created, because "some" people will try to do things which aren't meant for i t ;-)
So, Sorry but no, you can't use the Time Capsule as an external HD through the USB-port. There's simply no way cause there isn't software for this, neither is the hardware present in the Time Capsule.
The only function for the usb port is to:
- connect more external HDD's
- connect wireless able printers,
- usb sticks
- service maintenance
So sorry but wired connection to your pc is not possible.
Cheers!Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.
