Time Capsule With Windows 7 Please Help Going Round in Circles!

Hi
have just got a 1Tb time capsule for Xmas. I have a 13" Macbook unibody and have installed the time machine and airport utility through this, thinking apple computer + apple time capsule will be easier. All went well and the Macbook sees the Drive and has backed itself up nicely. So very pleased.
Then the problem i have a windows 7 machine and went off and installed the airport utility on the machine. All went fine, but i cant see the HDD, i can see it in network places but all i can do is read it, i can't write to it from my windows machine. Have looked at loads of posts about mapping drives making sure latest firmware (7.5) etc but am totally lost as i read so many different things that i just ended up going round in circles!
What i wanted to do was put all my media, documents and pics on the TC and allow both machines to share from it and use it. But no matter what i try it seems i can only write to it from the mac. I have seen in the airport utility on the windows machine under disks (after selecting manual setup)> file sharing that the secure shared disks is set to "with device password", now i have the passwords, i just cant seem to see where i can see that drive in windows and where to enter the password!!! Should that be set to something else? File sharing is enabled.I assumed once i had installed the airport utility on the windows machine the HDD would just pop up in my computer or something like it popped up easily on the mac! Or am i being stupid and it doesnt work like that?
The windows machine is connected via ethernet and the mac is wireless.
Please can someone help as its driving me mad and i just cant seem to figure it out. Am not that computer savvy when it comes to things like this and am probably missing something really stupid but you know what its like when you have stared at something for hours. Any help would be most appreciated or SIMPLE guide or something
Many thanks in advance and happy Xmas to you all

Just an update to the above i can now no longer see the time capsule in network places!! All i have done is retstarted!!! I can still see the time capsule from my mac and access it!!!

  • How do i set up my time capsule with windows

    How do I set up my airport time capsule using Windows 7 home premium?

    If you have the newest AC model TC.. you might be in trouble. Apple specifically state you need v6 airport utility. They do not provide v6 with windows.. only Mac and iOS. If you happen to have iphone, ipad even itouch, you can download and install the airport utility and use that.. you just cannot do the setup from windows.

  • Use Time Capsule with Windows-based Computers and PowerLan Devices

    Hi All -
    I would like to inquire whether I can:
    1) use a Windows-based conputer to access the internal hard disk of Time Capsule; and
    2) connect the Time Capsule with prower lan devices (e.g. Aztech) to extend the wirless coverage.
    Thank you.
    Gary

    Yes.. but.. Long term storage of info is not really wise where you have no backup. TC is not able to back itself up and you will have issues finding anything but manually doing it from windows.
    What windows version?
    Have you installed the airport utility? That makes life much easier, as it adds bonjour for windows and a disk access agent.
    Simply installing the utility may be enough. If not open windows explorer and type the name or IP directly into the address bar.
    Note.. you should use all names on the TC that are short, no spaces and pure alphanumeric.
    \\TCname or \\TCIPaddress (where you obviously change to real name (no spaces of course) or IP)
    If you still have issues.. check that you can ping the TC.. and make sure firewalls are not blocking it and your PC is located HOME, not WORK or PUBLIC.

  • Using Time Capsule with Windows XP

    Hi, I have just setup a TimeCapsule in my home, where I have Verizion FiOS with an Actiontec Wireless router.  I have set up ther Time Capsule in bridge mode.  Everything is working well.  I can connect to either the Verizon Router wireless network or the Time Capsule wireless network from my Windows laptop and from my Macbook Air and get to the Internet. 
    Problem: Airport Utility (Version 5.5.3) which I have installed in my Windows XP laptop cannot discover the Time Capsule. I get an error message: "Airport Utility was unable to find any Airport Wireless devices".  I would like to set up backup to Time Capsule from my Windows Laptop.
    What am I doing wrong?
    Thank for any help you can provide.

    Plug in via ethernet..
    If you still cannot find the TC.. press and hold the reset for 10sec until the front led flashes rapidly.
    The TC then has to show up.. but if not, you need to isolate the TC from the rest of the network.. so on the laptop is plugged into a LAN port.. and laptop has no other connection. .Make sure the laptop is set to auto IP and gets 10.0.1.x ip address.
    Then you should be able to access the TC.
    Give it short SMB names.. both TC and wireless. no spaces, pure alphanumeric.
    You should probably also set fixed channels..
    For disk access turn on guest account to read and write.. and set workgroup correctly in file sharing area.

  • Using the harddisk on Time-Capsule with Windows

    I would like to connect the harddisk in my Time-Capsule on a Windows-XP PC.
    The drive has its file-sharing with a disk-password. With my iMac I can use the drive normaly.
    But even the Domain is set to Workgroup, like all Window-machines, I can't see nor connect from my Windows-XP PC to this drive.
    The windows-machine has a correct network-connection (I see all my Macs and other Windows-machines).
    So, why is the harddisk from the time-capsule not recognized by the Windows-PC's?
    Thanks.
    Erich

    your network componets config could be blocking the settings needed to make this work transparently. there are things like firewall settings that change the transparency of a network.
    reguardless of the settings, you should be able to use explorer, tools tab, map network driver tab and either browse til you find your time capsule drive or you can type in the time capsule location in the folder box such as \\x.x.x.x\sharename where x.x.x.x is the IP address of your time capsule unit and sharename is the name of the timecapsule drive share.
    you can also go to a dos box in windows via the start, run and type cmd in the dialogue box. once you get a dos box, enter net use y: \\x.x.x.x\sharename where y: is the drive letter you will be assigning, x.x.x.x is the TC IP address, and sharename is the TC share name. you will be promted for a user ID and pass word. if you setup your TC to allow guest full access then the user ID is guest and the password is the TC unit password. Once you get this working....you can change from guest access to a named userid and password access.
    hope this helps

  • Cant log in to time capsule with windows vista computer

    When i try to log in to the time capsule I keep getting an error message that wont let me log in. I turned the firewalls off and it still doesnt let me. Any help??

    Hello lascall. Welcome to the Apple Discussions!
    See if the following resolves your Vista access issue with the Time Capsule:
    o From the Vista desktop, click Start
    o Search for: security
    o Click 'Local Security Policy'
    o Goto Local Policies > Security Options
    o Under Policy, double-click 'Network security: LAN Manager authentication level'
    o Change level to: Send LM & NTLM responses
    o Under Policy, double-click 'Network security: Minimum session security for NTLM SSP based (including RPC) clients'
    o De-select 'Require 128-bit encryption'
    o Click OK

  • Use Time Capsule with Windows

    Hey,
    I have an older PC with 80GB and want to move all the stuff (pics, videos) to my new Time Capsule.
    Is this possible?

  • Using Time Capsule with Windows 7. Won't work when modem connected directly to Time Capsule, must be connected through another router.

    Apple Time Capsule working with Windows 7 PC will not work when modem is connected directly to the Time Capsule.  Only when a Cisco Linksystem is connnected inbetween the modem and the Time Capsule.

    Sorry but it needs much more specific info than this..
    What modem? Is it cable or adsl or some other?? Is it pure modem or broadband router included?
    Cable has specific issues different to adsl.
    If you used to use the Cisco/linksys router.. and have not reset the cable modem it will not work. Turn off the cable modem.. it must be powered down.. if battery backup drop out the battery. Remove the coax cable.. get it off. Power down everything else in the network.
    Plug in the modem to the TC wan port.
    Power up the modem.. wait 2min
    Power up the TC.. wait 2min
    Power up the clients.
    If it has worked you will now be able to open the airport utility on the windows computer and see the TC has a public ip on the WAN port. If not redo the whole thing but leave the modem off.. 15min.. 1 hour.. 1 day.. ring the cable company and ask them to reset. Usually a few minutes is enough.
    If you have a modem with combined router.. then bridge the TC. Just google search it.
    For other combos.. tell us specifics..

  • Accessing the hard drive of a Time Capsule with Windows XP

    Hi,
    I have a time capsule configured in client mode so that I could share a printer and a hard drive on my existing wireless network. I now can print from both computers and I can acces the hard drive with the mac that I used to configure the time capsule.
    But I can't find anyway to access the hard drive from the pc. When I use AX to connect as a guest it's giving me an error "user unknown or session desactivated contact the admin (67)". (The config is authorizing guests so it should work)
    What's wrong ?
    Thanks for your help,
    Julien

    FireWire Target Disk Mode requires two Macs.
    Can you remove the hard drive from teh PC laptop? If so, you can use one of these:
    Newer Technology Universal Drive Adapter USB 3.0 - connects any 2.5", 3.5" or 5.25" drive
    to mount the drive on the Mac. most Macs will read PC drives. You can't salvage applications but you may be able to recover data files.

  • Can we use Time Capsule with Windows?

    We set up a new Time Capsule today and both our Macs have Internet access through it, but not our Windows laptop. What do we need to do? 

    Make sure you have the airport utility for windows installed.. it is not much use with the latest AC model airports but does load bonjour for windows.
    In the Mac, redo the setup of the TC.
    Use all short names, no spaces and pure alphanumeric. ie TCgen5 good base station name.
    TC24ghz and TC5ghz for wireless.. I strongly recommend you use different names for the two bands.. at least to troubleshoot.
    Use no security for a test. If windows cannot connect to 2.4ghz change the channels and try 11, 6, 1 in that order.
    Once you have it working add security.. WPA2 Personal with a 10-20 character pure alphanumeric password.

  • Failure to Setup my Time Capsule Device.  PLEASE HELP ME.

    Hey everyone,
    I just bought my Time Capsule device and I installed the software that came with it. Then I powered up the device. I opened the Airport Utility. I found my device. I went through the steps as instructed. It required that the time capsule device restarts so i hit continue. It restarted and when it had finished turning back on an error came up saying that it could not locate an Apple wireless device. Have any of you guys ran into this problem? Can you help me? My ultimate goal is to connect my Time Capsule to my existing wireless network.

    I too had set-up problems, but went to my DHCP/DNS server configuration with Automatic for network instead of my normal................but, I have to go to system preferences EVERYTIME and ask for assistance with message asking if I want to set up using a different set-up then go to my INP, which is my cable connection for internet and ask for user name and password. Thinking that that was the solution, I called Mediacom and they said it is APPLE I need to contact.
    I am loving the freedom of my router when it connects, but do not understand why I have to go to Systems Preference to assist and it has to "recognize" a new configuration each and every time. Looking forward to solution. Thanks
    PS: This is my first discussion and I could not find the icon to post a question so I hooked on to Big Mike and Glenn.

  • How to use my time capsule with windows vista

    i have a 2tb time capsule iphone 3gs appple tv and a ipad 2 the wife and kids have iphone 3gs and 4 and id like to set up a home network for us all to use and share music and photos is this possible

    Sorry the title never gets into detail at any point.. no vista computer is listed.
    Access the vista computer to TC turn on the guest network and allow full read write access. Make sure you have the workgroup set correctly. There are issues sometimes on the windows side but try that.
    As for using the TC as a file store.. well it isn't a good idea. It is a backup device.. which has no ability to back up itself. There is no mirrored disks and one day it will die and you can say bye bye to your precious photos and music. You can work your way around the issue.. sure.. in the end you will need an alternative backup on a computer.. that alternative backup will then be backed up to where??
    If you must run your itunes and iphoto library on the TC just read about how to set up the libraries in network location. Google will find the posts.

    You perhaps should read all the other posts about why not.. as well as how to.
