Use the Connect to Server command in the Finder's Go menu, and check the settings in the General and Sidebar tabs of the Finder's preferences. You may also need to connect the drive through a powered USB hub.

Thanks - the Connect to Server helped, typing in the IP address shown in Airport Utility. I can see the Mac drives and the time capsule drive which is what I'm after (but not the Windows drive). I had to drag the drive into the left tab of the Finder window to keep it there, but it's now there every time I open Finder, which is what I'm after.
Could I gain 'better' access to this USB drive wirelessly? Disk utility can't find it - I was going to remove the old time machine partition on the external USB. If I plugged the disk straight into the computer I could do that, but I wondered whether I could get the same level of access without having to remove it from the time capsule

1. The Time Capsule can't read or share USB drives or partitions which are formatted as exFAT or NTFS.
2. No. The Disk Utility won't list network drives in the sidebar; they need to be connected to a computer to be repaired, erased, or repartitioned.
