    .... Download a file (music album for instance) on your iMac, save it to your a
    formatted external hard drive for a Mac BUT somehow use it on a windows Laptop?

    I will only be using the laptop to run a one programme only for work and just need to access the music files on the HD :confused:

    Not if the drive is formatted as Mac OS Extended (Journaled). It'd need to be NTFS or FAT.

    Mac OS Journaled(HFS+) partitions can be accessed via Windows using either MacDrive (commercial) or HFSExplorer (open source).
