Will this cord connect my 2-TB Time Capsule to my MacBook Pro (early 2013 model)?  I only use the Time Capsule for backing up, not for wifi.

  • It will not work.

    The fastest way to connect your Macbook to your Time Capsule is via ethernet cable. (You can access the hard just fine using the ethernet cable). Since the Macbook Pro (Early 2013) model does not have an ethernet port, you'll need the Thunderbolt to Ethernet adapter sold by apple (Make sure it's thunderbolt 2, not USB-C. Also, make sure it isn't the USB to Ethernet adapter, which is primarily for the Macbook Air, and will severely slow down your connection, if it works at all.).

  • You would want a regular USB cable (USB "Type A"), not this cable. This is for connecting Micro-B devices, like a Seagate Portable HD or something, to a USB-C equipped computer, like the new MacBook (which only has a USB-C port). The Time Capsule and your MacBook Pro both have regular USB ports ("Type A"). You can buy a regular USB cable just about anywhere.

  • Apple Responds

    Good question. The MacBook Pro(early 2013) model isn't designed with a USB-C port, so it's unable to coonect with the Belkin USB-C to Micro-B Cable (USB 3.1).
