Do you have a local network? (How do you get internet access?)
Do you have a flash drive?
What would you like to transfer from? Is it connected to a local or home network?
What volume of files are you talking about? 100Mb, 100GB?
Do you have a thumb drive?

An external hard drive would be ideal if you have a huge amount of files.

I do have a local network. I was under the impression that a removable drive would have to be reformatted to work with a pc vs a mac.

Thanks for the quick responses.

OH, about 160 Gb of music files are the most important ones, and about 100 gigs of pro tools files, but those will be living on another removable drive.

You should be able to transfer the files across your local network.

[Edit] My nephew temporarily stored about 50 Gigs of music on a Window computer from his Mac. You would need to create a shared folder on your Toshiba, then you should be able to transfer the files from you Mac to the PC. [end edit]
