Answer to: Unit shuts itself down. Only special Apple labeled HD to be used?I've been to the Genius Bar today and, yes, as we all agree upon, it is most likely the electronics. As the TC is way past any warranty time the Apple guy could only make an offer of a € 50,- rebate on an replacement model. An Apple Care plan for a Mac would have helped (they would have replaced it) but I didn't have one. Conclusion: TimeCapsule is dead, drive is fine. Will either get a refurbished one or a WD My Book NAS.
