Unfortunately without the use of *any* 3rd party software at all this is not possible.

OSX uses a different file format to the Windows Standard of NTFS.

The OSX file format standard is called HFS+ and IS NOT supported by Windows as dscl says.

There are a few 3rd Party applications which allow you to read HFS+ formatted volumes from Windows

HFS Explorer (Freeware) - http://hem.bredband.net/catacombae/hfsx.html
