Time Capsule Help

HEY

I don't know where else to turn to. I recently bought a 500 GB Time Capsule from the US and I just plugged it in. I updated the software and firmware on the router and I plugged in a printer and USB Hard Disk to it. In Airport Utility I can see the plugged in USB hard disk and I can see it in Windows Explorer too. HOWEVER I can't see the actual 500GB TC Hard disk itself?

WHATS GOING ON ANYONE KNOW AT ALL?

Tinbane your my last hope!

Thats not my problem, my Air Port Utility can't even see the drive at the moment. It can see the USB attached Hard Disk. I even have it mapped in my Windows explorer. But the actual 500GB drive I cannot see at all. I tried mapping it but it doesn't seem to register at all.

Hmm. Look at the apple support page, give apple a call. It's possible (but not likely) that your shipped with a dud HDD.

I think im stuffed because I actually got this off Ebay from the US so I don't know how warranty works. Your with a Authorised reseller right? How would it work in this case?

Ahh. Okay. This is exactly why buying from eBay can be problematic. Even just 'saver' websites in Australia can really ream your with warranty issues.

Do you have a tax invoice from the Ebay seller, and are they an Authorised reseller?

If you PM me the serial number, I can look up the warranty status for you. Don't post the serial number, and don't send it unless you trust me with the number.

Take it apart and see if there is actually a drive in it.

Hahah there is definetly a drive in it, its burning heaps hot, and I actually saw the hard disk before on Airport Utility. I might go and reinstall airport back to original version to see if that will help me out.

I have been told that it might be because Im only using Windows computers that it might be formatted into the wrong format? (HFS+ when I need it to be FAT32). Could this be a possible problem with it?

Ah, possibly. I haven't played with the time capsule that much.
Don't take it apart, that will void your warranty.

Quite possibly, do you have anyone with a Mac you could borrow ?

Are you running 5.3.2 ?

Yep I am running 5.3.2 already. I've been trying to think of a way to reset the TC back to its original firmware and then run the original Air port utility and see if it works this way. But when I reset it through the reset button it just resets the profiles.

I have Bounjour I'll have a look again, Im pretty sure I installed everything on that CD. Its funny to me that Airport Utility can't see it though? And it seems to me without a Mac I can't format the TC lols

I have noticed something today
after I restart the TC sometimes when the hard drive starts whiring and the whole TC gets really hot. I can hear the Hard disk in it actually spinning.

:/ Not a good idea. Based on the S/N it's under warranty.

Take it to a service centre and get it replaced.

It's quite a nice store, isn't it ? I do think they need to add a 3rd set of registers though as well as redesign their receipt layout.

I have a 1.5m receipt.
