    Hi, I am looking into purchasing a Time Capsule. However, I was wondering if the USB port on the Time Capsule can supply power to a portable usb hard drive (WD Passport) or does the hard drive have to have its own power source. Thanks.

    Absolutlely,.... the Time Capsule is capable of powering up your WD Passport!

    I do use the same setup myself,... have my large iTunes and iPhoto Libraries on the Passport to bring it to the office.

    Go for it ;)
