freebsd can mount ntfs read only and with limited writing support
(see 'man mount_ntfs' for details. (should be enough for playing mp3s).
you can create a fat32 partition which freebsd and windows can read and
write, or a ext2fs partition and get a ext2fs driver for windows. i'm
not totally sure, but think freebsd can write ext2fs.
