    I need to access my Time Capsule's external HD on my Windows 7 side.... I can't figure out how to access it...... so how do you do it?

    you probably need to install MacDrive or HFS+ on your winsloth installation.

    If you are leaving it connected to the Time Capsule, then you should not have to install any HFS+ drivers. You should be able to turn on Windows sharing and see it over the network as an SMB/CIFS share.

    If you can already see the internal drive in your network you have Windows sharing turned on, otherwise use Airport Utility to turn it on first.

    good point.

    i last booted up my windoze machine many moons ago. i wasn't sure if the fact that i always could see the TC's drive (or the USB drive hanging off my extreme) was due to having MacDrive installed or not.
