I have a 1TB Time Capsule too, but based on its reliability, I'm not optimistic about a long life.

    What convinced to buy the first one was that the Apple Store employees were using them out on the floor.

    This Lacie drives works easily with Time Machine and the older Apple Backup software.

    I highly recommend it.

It may be the cable, it may be the USB plug, it may be the unit. Nonetheless, it doesn't work. The hard drive may be rugged but if information isn't stored ruggedness doesn't matter.
