Upgrade drive in 1st Gen TC or will power supply fail?
I've researched how to swap hard drive in a Time Capsule but I keep getting conflicting information as to whether or not I should bother because of the power supply.
I have the 1st-gen 500GB model (A1254) and I just bought a WD Green WD20EARS 2TB drive to drop in there. I've seen a lot of posts with folks replacing the drive that don't mention any power supply issues; over on the Apple forums I have a guy telling me the power supply won't be enough to spin up the drive AT ALL, and that I'm better off just looking for a used later-gen model. I also don't know if this drive will spin down at all so it's possible the unit or drive will burn out quickly anyway.
So which is it -- can I replace the drive in this thing or not?
