    Hi everyone, I recently bought a 2TB time capsule and I was wondering if I can connect it directly using the USB port to my laptop? Using a double USB cable to get faster transfer of information. I need to transfer a lot of information.
    It's seems to be running a bit slow, maybe because of my network configuration.

    Any recommendations or advice?

    Thanks a lot.
    Luis

    No, it will not work to connect the TC internal drive to your laptop.
    Here are the uses for the TC USB port:
