How do I export my My Passport data to my new user account on macbook

I have to put my hard drive on another computer-macbook air. But I do not know how to import FROM the My Passport TO the macbook. Please help. Cannot find instructions anywhere.

You mean just COPYING the files won’t work?

No…and using time machine will not allow restore on the selected back up. thanks

So these are TIME MACHINE backups, or just ordinary data?   

I didn’t see Time Machine mentioned above.
