I tried using the USB connection, but the computer doesn't recognize the droid as a storage device.
You need to install the Moto drivers in order for your computer to recognize the phone and enable file transfers. They're available on Motorola's website and any additional drivers for other modes should install themselves after you have loaded those from Moto and connected the phone.
