how to store music on time capsule

can you use time capsule as a hard drive
I am running out of memory and would like to transfer data like photos to another hard drive and erase the photos from my Macbook. Can I use the time capsule or is an external hard drive better. Also I have one but it doesn't show what I have stored in it. It is only for back ups. Want one that I can access and able to view pics, documents etc. Any advice??

    The hard disk in Time Capsule shows up as a network attached drive through Bonjour. Any computer on your network will be able to access the drive either for use as TimeMachine (Macs only) or as an external hard drive.

    So yes, you can use it as a storage area for data. In addition you can plug further hard drives into the USB port, using a hub if you want more than one drive or if you want printers as well, for extra network storage and functionality.
