From finder, click "Go", "Connect to Server".

Select the Windows machine in the list.


Double-click the icon and drag the files to your mac.

Drag the icon to the trash to disconnect from it.

Is windows sharing turned on in your Sharing preference pane?

If not then you need to enter this "smb://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/<user_on_pc_to_login_as>"

If it is wait and your mac should find it. Else just follow the above and it will work. The "//" thing is a windows thing.
