If that drive is indeed using NFS, Windows does have an NFS client and
it doesn't work out too bad. Can't remember where it is, but I think it
is something called Unix Services for Windows.

I have used CentOS to connect to a windows smb share.. so it does work,
just had to look it up on google. 

I am kind of confused by your message, are you saying that the 1TB NAS
drive is sitting on the network and is NOT attached to any computer on
your network? 

Or is the problem connecting CentOS to a Windows share?
