Most people who choose to buy mobile devices that run on the Android operating system also decide to buy computers that run Windows because they seem to be a lot more convenient for people to use with apps like flashing tools. For example, the Odin flashing tool for Samsung devices is only available for Windows (or at least if you want just to connect and start using Odin without spending a day trying to get it working with some tricks up your sleeve on another operating system).
Because Windows is the most common desktop operating system to use it is the primary operating system that developers choose to cater to with things like flashing tools. However, there is one annoyance that often gets in the way of being able only just to connect their mobile devices to the computer that runs Windows with the USB cable and things just tend to work, and that is the USB Drivers.
Each OEM or mobile device manufacturer has their unique USB Driver packages, and you need to have the right one installed on the computer running Windows before you can do things like transferring of data or using apps and tools on the computer that expect your device to be connecting to it before it can work. The flashing tool being another prominent and beautiful example of that.
The Motorola brand makes that easy for Motorola device owners by offering what they call the Motorola Device Manager app that runs on the computer and with it people can install official software updates and also the USB Drivers for their devices. If you find that the Motorola Device Manager runs to heavy on the computer of your because you don’t have much space, then you might prefer installing something like the Universal Windows ADB Driver on the computer which is made by Koushik Dutta. What Koush has done is combine the USB Drivers from most of the primary manufacturers and bundled them up into the one file, so they work for just about everybody. However, sometimes if you are using an older computer that Universal Windows ADB Driver package doesn’t install, and thus it’s less reliable overall than the Motorola, Device Manager.
