external hard drive switch from mac to pc

Specs: Windows XP
I have been using my external hard drive with my Mac computer. I temporarily need to use it on my PC to back up some files but it does not show up in "my computer" but the hard drive is working because it shows up under disc management. I need to get it to show up under my computer so I can save things to it. Help?

I am not sure. Initially I just plugged it into my Mac and it just worked haha, I didn't have to do anything to it.
