    I am curious into more of how this thing works. Can i store all my music and photos on it and then easily access them wirelessly? Basically i would want to have my computer in my pool room and be able to play music from the TC on my macbook. Is this possible? it would be nice to have a completely clean HD on the computer and work off the HD.

    Thanks for reading and replying!

    Yes, you should be able to do this.

    One thing to consider is whether the wireless transfer speeds will bog things down in iPhoto.

    I see no reason why this shouldn't work. As long as you have a computer that can access the drive on the Time Capsule, you should be fine.

    I'm using a networked drive (not a TC, but connected wirelessly) to access iTunes with multiple computers without a hitch.

    EDIT: I tried moving my iPhoto library to this network drive and it was s-l-o-w. For some reason, iPhoto was putting every picture into a single file, which had grown to over 8 Gb. That takes a very looooong time to load via a wireless connection.
