Try assigning the external drive a drive letter via your HTPC. Then you should see this in your "sources" list of options.
Put your media in a folder on this drive and make sure it is a "shared" folder. Though this should not matter if the drive is attached to the HTPC. But you never know. Anyhow, this folder should then show up in your list of sources.
Well come to think of it this pertains to Win7... I you are using linux, mac, live.... then IDK.
I'll try your ideas ^_^ and I'm running it on Win7.
