Sure, I do it all the time. It's called a Flash Drive or USB stick. Insert stick in to USB port, copy files to stick, remove stick and put it in other machine copy file from stick to machine. This is usable Linux to Windows, Windows to Linux and you could even add other OS's to the mix.
You could also burn to CD/DVD, even floppy would work assuming both machines have floppy drives.
If you mean on the same computer. Then ntfs-3g will do the job in most cases.

I have a similar problem.
I want to copy files from a Linux computer to a Windows system using a USB stick.
This stick is fromatted under Windows. I have mounted it on Linux and can see and open the files.
I try to copy a file (or a whole map) but when trying to paste on the USB stick, this command is dimmed.
What do I have to do?
