When you decide to buy a Motorola device that runs on Android and pair it with a computer that runs on a version of the Windows operating system you need to create a bridge for the connection. By default Windows does not automatically detect your device due to incredibly geeky things that neither you nor I could probably comprehend very easily. But all you need to know is that without the USB drivers installed there is no bridge, and there is no connection which means you cannot do things like run apps or programs on the computer that need to connect with your device, and you cannot transfer any data, in general, such as pictures from an SD card.
Most people aren’t superb with tech and if they knew that were true many of them would nearly have a heart attack, but they need not worry because Microsoft automatically programs the Windows operating system to handle much of the burden for you by installing them automatically. However, there are times when the installation does not work, or Windows is unable to detect what device it is you are using, and thus cannot install the drivers that it needs. Furthermore, there are other times when developers want to connect to the computer and run things like flashing tools, and these tools (programs or apps on the computer) cannot detect a device until you install the correct USB drivers file, manually because Windows rarely handles those kinds of drivers.
The good news for you guys—regardless of what you want to do (use apps, programs or just create a br8idge for transferring data)—is that the one USB driver package available in this guide handles all of those things for you.
