ISAM tables (.ISD/.ISM) are machine dependent, so you cannot move them
directly to Windows and use them there.
MyISAM tables (.MYD/.MYI) are machine independent. If your tables were
MyISAM tables, you'd be able to do what you want.
You can use mysqldump to dump the tables to a text file, then move that
file to your Windows box and recreate them there.
% mysqldump database tbl1 tbl2 ... > dump.txt
