Right, I have a Mac with an HD Extreme 2 card in it (FCP7) and a PC with Prem Pro and a Decklink Mini Monitor card in it. What file type can I export from FCP7 that will open in Prem Pro? from Prem pro I will then output as a (Blackmagic) Motion Jpeg (don't ask, that's all that will play in Media Express other than uncompressed!!) would rather not use an uncompressed codec for obvious reasons!!

ProRes works fine from CS5 upwards in Windows.
 
exFAT formatted drives make moving content between platforms easy.

Apple ProRes. I didn't know there was a Black Magic ProRes.
 
AFAIK you can install BlackMagic drivers to get the CODECs on a machine without a BlackMagic card.
 
I'd stick with the Apple variety. The LT version is fine for HDV/EXCAM if you aren't doing loads of grading - otherwise 422 and HQ offer better and best quality but take up much more space.
