Installing the USB Drivers on a computer for a smartphone or tablet is a normal thing to occur, but usually, Windows is programmed to handle that for you, so you don’t need even to think about it. If Windows cannot work out what your device is or it cannot locate the correct drivers that need installing for that device, then it gives up and needs to rely on you to do it instead.
If you are somebody who wants to transfer data to and from the computer with your Motorola mobile device, then it can only happen if you have the correct Motorola USB Drivers installed on the computer first. Additionally, you need to install the drivers when you need to do something on the computer with the smartphone or tablet connected to the computer with the USB cable and it is not working.

However, there is also another way which makes use of the Universal Windows ADB Driver developed by Koushik Dutta (the found of ClockworkMod Recovery among other things) and that ADB Driver compiles a bunch of the traditional OEM and manufacturer drivers together.
