    I am unable to back up to my time capsule whenever I try I get the following error:

    The backup disk image could not be created.

    The disk is empty and I have over 920 GB's free

    Does anyone know whats going on?

    I Had Some Trouble... But Finally Worked

    The first problem I found was that I did not run the software disk that shipped with the Time Capsule. Having just purchased the newest MacBook Pro last week I thought my Disk Utility was all I needed. If you do not run the new software and use you Disk Utility you computer only recognizes the Time Capsule as an Airport Extreme, after running software it becomes Time Capsule. Restart you computer before trying to back up, if you have a laptop it has to be plugged into power outlet.

    I did not find it necessary to run the install disk, either on my newish MBA or on my 07 iMac. YMMV, obviously.
