Snow Leopard + Boot camp Win 7 + HFS External Drive

My OSX partition shows up fine in my Bootcamped Windows 7 x64, and I can read/write to it fine. My external, a Western Digital 1tb drive formated HFS+, is connected thru firewire, and it doesn't seem to mount or show up at all.

Anyone else having this issue?

So just to be clear...if I buy an external hard drive with the intent to have a Windows NTFS partition plus a Mac partition, I would need to format it and partition it from the Mac, correct? I think I read once that if I set it up for Windows and then want to add a Mac partition, I would have to wipe the whole thing, right?

I've been having this same problem as well. The HFS+ drivers for Boot Camp don't seem to support external drives. So I've been using HFS Explorer, which is what I used before Boot Camp 3. I'm also running Windows 7 64-bit.
