Motorola does not make things easy. They conveniently include a mini-USB connector on the outside of the V3 RAZR mobile phone. However, if you use a standard digital camera or other USB to mini-USB cable from your Windows XP based computer – nothing works or happens. Well, you do get the Microsoft Windows Add Hardware wizard, but no drivers can be found. Motorola and the various carriers have even gone as far as disabling the Bluetooth OBEX file transfer service so you are left with a very crippled Bluetooth. The reason for this is that Motorola wants you to spend more money on a couple of options that they have:
Spend money to transfer these files wirelessly, to increase your monthly usage.
Determined not to go either of these routes, I figured there had to be a couple of basic drivers available on the Internet. Two hours later, after scouring Google and wading through the droves of useless advertisements, I was finally able to locate the drivers that would provide what I was looking for. That means that in quick order I could connect my Motorola V3 RAZR to my Windows XP PC, charge the phone and transfer files! However, if this solution is not for you there are other possible solutions incluing ones cheaper than the $59.95 price! To make matters worse, the pages where the drivers were located are poorly organized, littered with unhelpful information, bad text, and had several circular links before you could get exactly what you need. So, in order to make this easy for those who follow after me, here is an easy-to-use guide with links to the drivers you will need. A tutorial, if you will. There will be two section of this “How-to” – the first to enable your computer to charge your phone over USB and the second to enable easy file transfer so you can access your pictures, videos, and more! Update: The popularity of this post has been so high, that have I created several additional posts to help you out with your Motorola V3 RAZR phone, they include the below.

Goto Settings-> Connection -> USB Connection -> Default settings change to "Memory Card" and then connect with your PC. you will see your SD card as a disk drive in my computer. if you have photos saved on phone you need Motorola Phone tools installed. software CD that comes free of charge.
If you are in the UK, go to the carphone warehouse. If you are anywhere in America ect, go to any phone shop and ask for Motorola Phone Tools Version 4.0 for your PC. Install the package and upload Via the software program. The package contains a USB lead and the CD for £10 in England. Prices may vary in different countrys.
Try checking the usb cable. Some usb cables aren't made so you can charge your phone. Believe it or not but usually the cheaper cables are the ones that work for charging my motorola razr v3 phone. If that doesn't work, check to see if you didn't mess up the interface when you plugged into the phone.
