I had to re-format mine (MacOS Extended, Journaled) to make it work.

I am able to recognize the drive if I plug it in directly into either the PC or MBA, it's only when I plug it into the time capsule - would I still need to format the drive if this is the case?

Yes, I believe so.
PC and MBA support the FAT File System and MBR Partition table, but the Time Capsule and AE apparently don't.
Just copy everything to a backup volume, partition and format the drive with "Disk Utility", then copy back all the files, and you should be ok.

I have the same issues, except I have anothor drive (not seagate) hooked to one of my timecapsules (yes I have 2 for diff parts of the house), and it is formated for PC and it works fine. The seagate ones seem to be the issue (plugged into mac works fine, had to install NFS software to be able to write to it. Read someplace online that people say to remove and seagate drivers fro the mac, but that does not make any sense if issue is with time capsule?
If I reformat, then I can easily use for direct plug to PC as needed for larger movements. ANy other ideas on how to get seagate to play with Time Capsule?

It's likely that you have to reformat your drive. Follow HT2426.
The AirPort Extreme (802.11n) and Time Capsule support USB storage devices that are formatted as Mac OS Extended (HFS-plus), FAT16, or FAT32. Formatting a storage device as Mac OS Extended with journaling is recommended, as it may provide some more resilience if the device is removed or powered down while in use.
Note: ExFAT and NTFS formats aren't supported.

I have a 3tb Seagate goFlex drive already formatted for Mac OS extended journaled which shows up that way when connected to my macbook air, but my new Time Capsule (tower version) won't recognize it. Any suggestions, (I can't reformat it, it has tons of archival files.)
