    Hi, I've just recently got a 2 TB Time Capsule. I would like to connect a WD drive to it that contains a large amount of media files, so that I can share them throughout the network. The drive has been formatted to NTFS, which obviously is not being recognized. Is there any way I can make it available for the Time Capsule without losing the Data on the drive?

    Thanks a lot!

    Nevermind, I came to a workaround - I had a backup of the media files on another drive that is hooked up to my WinPC, so I formatted the USB drive with two 500 GB partitions, one as Fat32, the other HFS, right now I'm copying the files from the other PC drive to the Fat32 partition in windows, then I'll copy them from the Fat32 partition to the HFS partition. And then from the HFS partition to the time capsule.

    (I'm still new to Apple filesystems and stuff, so don't laugh :) )
