Is this possible and a way to circumvent the issue with the temp sensors? what do you think.

I am talking about the latest TC revision.

If you have a Mac mini instead of an iMac, since I misread the title somehow:

Do you want to use the TC HDD in the Mac mini? If so, that is not possible, as the TC uses a 3.5" HDD and the Mac mini uses a 2.5" HDD.

Review the thread title. iMac mid 2010, not mini. ;)

I would not recommend that as the TC drive will have been on in a poor thermal environment for all its life and may have had its life shortened.

Ahhhhhh. :eek: The "mid" part looked like "mini". Thanks for embarrassing me.

Sorry for late reply. I have a brand new 2TB Time capsule and a mid 2010 iMac with 500gb HDD. I realised now that upgrading the TC to 3TB would come in handy and also I'm running out out space on my iMac. Do you think I can use the TCs HDD and put it in my iMac without running into the problem with the not working temperature sensor? You run into this problem when not using apple HDDs but this isnt the case when using the HDD of the time capsule.

What do you think?
