I have a 2TB 2nd gen Time Capsule (A1302) coming from the USA.
I have a 3TB WD Green Sata III hard drive.
Will I be able to upgrade the TC to 3TB using that drive?
It isn't formatted at the moment, will the Time Capsule format it?

Yes, the Time Capsule will be able to format it. Just put the new drive in and format it with Airport Utility.

Yes, thats the way I updated mine. Open the case, swap drives, put things back together, use AP Utility to tell the Time Capsule to format the drive (drive tab)

I believe I may have a problem with the drive not spinning down.
It is a Western Digital WD30EURX green.
