Assuming that you are using Windows and that the images on your WD drive are "in clear" rather than being back-up copies or encrypted in any way, then simply drag them over in Explorer, a folder at a time.

If, on the other hand, the WD drive is holding a back-up copy of the images, then you will have to restore them on to the drive of your laptop using the same back-up program as you used to create the back-up in the first place.
