    About the most simple way to do it would be to connect you phone via the provided USB cable and use the Mass Storage USB setting after plugging in the phone (pull down the Notification bar and use the USB selection). You might want to go ahead and download the Moto drivers before doing this from here: USB and PC Charging Drivers - Motorola Mobility, Inc. USA

    The phone is supposed to install all of the needed drivers when you plug it in, but you have to run through all of the connection settings to let them all install. This way you won't have to switch between them all, just set it in Mass Storage and start copying files to your preferred folder.

    Excellent !!

    Is there a good folder for videos and stuff on the internal drive ? On the SD card, I just leave them out of a folder otherwise some programs don't seem to be able to find them.

    Can you tell me which apps are having trouble finding the files and I can try to troubleshoot and find the best location?

    Edit: Also, depending on what video file type it is then the phone might not recognize it. .3gp .mp4 and .m4v are all recognized by the Atrix and should show up automatically no matter where you store them. Certain players like RockPlayer can play other file types and they actually let you browse your whole phone storage to look for the files instead of just offering a Gallery type of view, where it's only limited to what the phone finds and decides are video files.

    On SD, mobo music and a bunch of cover art apps couldn't find them and didn't have the ability to browse to them when I put them in a media folder. I dumped everything onto the main SD ( no folder ) and that seemed to work best. They seem to find them automatically here.

    I have not saved anything to the internal memory yet. Just wanted to check first as to the best location and save all the hassle of moving things around. I will be using mobo video app I think mostly and doubletwist or poweramp for audio.

    Thanks for the help

    Mobo actually gives me the option to set the folders where it searches for video files to add. Menu button, then tap the Folder Icon. You should then have a list of folders available and you can drill down to find a subfolder. You can also use the Menu button again to select to go up to the Parent folder.

    As a side note your internal storage is called /mnt/sdcard and your actual SD card is called /mnt/sdcard-ext

    BUT, I couldn't get Mobo to successfully play an mpg file I had, where Rockplayer played it just fine.

    The album art apps... I couldn't speak for them finding the correct location.
