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.

u need a special motorla program,if its not a v3i,the program is motorola phone tools,it has all the neccessary tools u need u add and remove song,pics an videos and even edit them before puttin it on the phone
there are mainly 2 ways to download/transfersongs to your Moto V3 - USB cable & Bluetooth (though you can also download from internet at the cost of airtime).
USB Cable: - download and install this usb driver - http://direct.motorola.com/hellomoto/Common/Drivers%20and%20Plug%20ins/USB_Driver_32.zip - connect the Motorola to the computer through USB cable. Now you can copy/transfer songs from your computer.
Bluetooth: Using Bluetooth you can transfer songs from any other Bluetooth device(other Mobile or computer which has Bluetooth) - Switch On your V3's Bluetooth. Press Menu -> Setting & Tools -> Connections -> Bluetooth -> Setup -> Power -On
- Make your V3 visible to other device. Press Menu -> Setting & Tools -> Connections -> Bluetooth -> Setup -> Find Me
- Now from any other mobile(having Bluetooth), select any song, go to its options, select either Send/Copy which has option To Bluetooth (it'll prompt to switch On the Bluetooth, answer yes)
- click on Search for Device. this will find your V3 in few seconds.
- after this it may ask to set a password, set a 4 digit password, say 1111
- now your V3 will also ask to confirm the password, keyin 1111
- You can see the progress of your song transfer. (for next song you'll only have to say Ok on V3, password etc. step only one time)
first you have to install motorola tolls cd you can find with the package of your motorola acsseries like charger headphone etc when you find the cd you put to your pc and install the software it helps to connect your pc and handset ,
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.
