    #1 Alright so my first question is would this 3TB Seagate drive work through the USB on my 500 GB Time Capsule for Time Machine? My backup file is now about 400 GB and I can only fit one backup on it. I don't want to pay $500 for a new 2TB Time Capsule.


    #2 If that drive does work can I use the 500GB drive in the Time Capsule as a dump drive?

    #3 This one is random but I have a Canon Rebel XSi. My 8GB card is getting to be small. I saw some 64GB SDXC card. Is 32GB the biggest my camera can write/read to?

    Thanks in advance!

    Any drive will work for Time Machine, as long as it's big enough to contain your backup and is formatted properly.
    You can use any drive for whatever purpose you choose. A drive is a drive.
    You might try a Google search for the specs/support info on that camera. I'm sure it will tell you.
