    Using Time Capsule as external hard drive...
    how do i use my time capsule as just an external hard drive?

    is there a way to directly hook the time capsule to my laptop via usb and not wifi...?

    i do not know of a usb cable that allows i missing something..?

    thank you.

    You would connect it via ethernet, not USB, and it would be drastically faster than USB.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
