You won't be able to save files on it while in-game.
When attached via an official transfer cable, the HDD shows up in System Settings, Memory as a Transfer Cable device. You can Copy or Move content to and from the Transfer Cable device just as you would other storage devices.
The Transfer Cable device is not usable outside of System Settings, Memory, that I'm aware of.
