    With a firewire drive, can I have the drive hooked up to my iMac via firewire, but also have it accessed through USB to my Time Capsule for wireless access?

    Thanks!

    just leave it hooked to the mac, and share the drive.

    chances are it won't work, but if it did, it would probably do bad things to the drive.

    No, you can't have two devices controlling your hard drive simultaneously.
