    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.
