Default [Q] Accessing external HDD connected to laptop with ES File Explorer

I am trying to access my external HDD that is connected to my laptop with ES File Explorer, as it has all my media on it.

I can access folders on my laptop's internal HDD, but when I try to access the shared folders in my external I get the following message:

Login Fails
This may be caused by:
WLAN is of
SMB server is out of network
The IP is invalid
Blocked by the firewall
SMB service is off

The external drive is formatted with NTFS file system.

If this thread is in the wrong forum, please let me know and I will move it.

Thanks in advance.
