    Patchsticked my :apple:tv, my external hard drive is a time capsule. my question is: if i buy a USB 2.0 cable that is USB 2.0 on both ends will it work?

    UPDATE: I forgot to post it'd be a male-A to a male-A cable

    I highly doubt that it would because the time capsule doesn't exactly work as an external hard drive, it works more like a NAS. That USB plug on the time capsule is to hook up a printer or an external hard drive to it for expansion/sharing.

    yea I dont think that would work at all. The USB port on the TC is for sharing external disks/printers, not for connecting it to a computer.
