    The proper term is actually "copy", not "download". And, assuming that these are backup copies made in the proper manner adhering to the law, i.e. for archival purposes (otherwise this would run afoul of copyright laws, and I assume Tom's takes talk of violating such seriously), then all you need to do is plug in your drive, copy the file to it, and then plug it in to your laptop.
  2. Assuming these are legally obtained movies, it should be just a matter of using the same program on the laptop as you do on your desktop. If you installed a specific codec pack on your desktop, you would need to install it on your laptop as well.

  3. Simply copy them to your external hard drive. As long as your laptop video player recognizes the formats of these copied movies, you can freely watch them there.
