I use both platforms and have no problems and no special software.

What sorts of problems are you having? How is it manifesting itself? How 
are you transferring the files?

Are you making sure to include the file extensions on your Mac files before 
trying to transfer them to the PC? That should solve most of the problem.

If you're having problems with the PC truncating file names, try using a 
(PC-formatted) Zip disk rather than a floppy, or email them back and forth 
(which I find easier than messing around with removable disks).
