How do I use my external drive on both mac and pc?

I have a Mac that has all my music,photos,and movies on it. My 250 gb external drive is formatted to this Mac. I just bought a Compaq Laptop(used),and would like to put some files on my ex drive from my Mac and transfer them to my laptop. How do I do this if its formatted to the Mac?

You must format it to a file system both Windows and Mac recognizes, preferably FAT32, but then you can't have any files bigger than 4 GB. You can format your drive to a Windows file system (NTSC) but because the file system isn't native to Mac you'll have to download some nifty (and free!) software.

First MacFuse: http://code.google.com/p/macfuse/

Then NTFS-3G: http://macntfs-3g.blogspot.com/2010/01/ntfs-3g-for-mac-os-x-2010116.html

After that you can read and write NTSC file systems without problems on your Mac. NTSC is preferred over FAT32 because it can store files above 4 GB as well.
