    I've purchased a usb cable for connecting my Atrix 2 to my PC, but I'm not knowledgeable regarding the needed software. May I have a recommendation, please?

    No software needed. Your PC should recognize the device you're connecting and display it as a drive - Like "Drive F", or whatever letter it assigns it.

    If you simply hook up via USB, change your USB connection on your phone to Mass storage (pull down notification and select USB after installing cable), then simply use your favorite file management program of your PC to drag and drop ... nothing fancy is needed.

    One rather annoying problem with our Motorola Atrix 2 is that you can not have apps on your SD card in order to use your phone as a "USB Storage Device."

    Here's the steps to transferring data between your phone and PC-
    1. Unlock your phone, and open your settings. Go to Applications->Manage Applications. Click the tab at the top called "On SD card."
    2. Scroll through the list of all of your apps. If you see an app with a check mark next to it, then click it. On the new window that opens there should be a button called "Move to phone." Click it, and wait for it to finish. Then hit the back button and repeat step two until there are no more apps with check marks next to them.
    3. You now can plug your phone in to your PC. Wait for the drivers to finish installing (it's OK to cancel searching in Windows Update).
    4. Unlock your Atrix 2, and open the drop-down notification window. There should be a pane called something like "USB Connection." Click it.
    5. Select "USB Mass Storage" and then click OK. Wait for the drivers to finish installing (again it's OK to cancel searching in Windows Update).
    6. You now can open up Windows Explorer ("My Computer") and your phone should be listed under "Removable Storage", which you can open up and make/delete folders and files.
    7. To disconnect your phone, unlock it again and open the drop-down notification window. Click the "USB Connection" button, select "Charge Only," wait a couple seconds, and then unplug the cable.
    NOTE: If for some reason these instructions do not work, you may need to download the drivers.

    Thanks UltraDroid, carl_h, and cogeary for your responses. I've not done this before. Maybe it's simpler than I thought. I will try it tonight.
