Okay, using Disk Utility, check the Info about your external HD file system. Is it FAT32 or NTFS, maybe HFS+? I note right at the end of the console report that MS DOS appears. That indicates that the EHD is formatted NTFS and that's why it was so difficult getting the movies etc on to it. I'm surprised you managed it. Usually MacOS cannot write to NTFS, but it can read it, which may be why you could watch movies okay from your EHD.
