on the phone, Can you pull the "shade" down at the top - the are where the clock is? do you seen an icon or an option to change usb settings after pulling down the shade?

When you plug in the phone, not all phones give a pop up, but you should see a little usb icon in the top and get to usb settings for mass storage from here.

Are you using the Motorola USB cable? Some USB cables are charge only.

Do you have the original charger that came with the phone. That cable is the best and is guaranteed to work. Or if you are unsure what to get, and for some reason yuou do not have the original charger, that would be what I would buy or order as it has a detachable cable that you can use to connect to a computer.

The phone end of the cable is called micro USB - I am not sure what a universal cable is - some cables do not work though.

Try on another computer with that cable first - also, if you know anyone with an Android phone, borrow their cable and try it - especially if it is a Moto phone. A moto cable is your best bet, but before you buy one, try to see if the computer or cable is the problem.
