Hi reasoner. You can't pin it to the Taskbar, as it is actually a folder in Windows Explorer.
What you can do though, is Pin it to your Explorer Jumplist
To do this:
Plug the External HDD in
Open Computer (Start>Computer)
Drag the HDD's Icon onto the Explorer Icon it will say "pin to Explorer"
Now if you right click the Explorer Icon it will be at the very top

Another option is to create a toolbar just for that drive.
How to Pin or Unpin a Drive to the Windows 7 Taskbar
Right-click on the Taskbar, select Toolbars->New toolbar... On the browse window that pops up, highlight the drive, click Select Folder and a toolbar will appear on the right-hand side of the taskbar. You can then have access to the drive or any of its folders right from the taskbar.
