I assume you are trying to access the files on the hard drive of the Sky+ box and not just watch tv programmes on the PC screen?

Basically
Simple answer is you can't do that with Sky hard drives because
1. The Sky box records the encoded data from the dish and decodes the video on playback using the electronics in the Sky box.
2. The data on the hard drive is not compatible with Windows ( the drive is not FAT32 )
3. The data is also encrypted.
