I’ve been using an external USB 2.5" hard drive (Spinpoint M7/Onnto case) for my Time Machine backups.
When I try to run that drive from the USB port of my new Time Capsule (4th gen.), it won’t spin up.
A search didn’t turn up complaints about the TC’s USB port not delivering enough juice for a small external HD, so I wonder if I have a faulty unit.
Have you tried using a powered USB hub? I usually have to use a powered USB hub with any drive connected to this port....even if the drive has its own power supply.
