You need SharePoints

This will allow you to share the external HD.

Then just map the drive like you would normally in Windows.

Sorry,...

Right click My Computer > Map Network Drive

Pick a letter and and choose a location, something like this,..

\\Name_of _your_mac\Name_of_share

There's also a use other login credantials link below. You need to use a username from the Mac like,...

name_of_mac\yourname
password

OK and then Finish

You will most likely get asked for user and password for Mac share on reboot of windows.
