Default how do I get music from my computer to my phone?

It seems simple enough. The USB (I think that is what it is) doesnt fit into my Motorola Droid X. Is it as simple as just getting the right cable?

If you didn't get a USB cable with your phone, you can buy one in any phone shop.
Connect the cable, select Disk mode on the phone and drag/drop your music files to the phone.

How did you not get a cable? Buy it used or some such?

At any rate there's roughly one billion (I did some number crunching, that's an accurate count) ways to transfer music or other files from your computer to your phone. If you don't want to get a new cable for USB I recommend dropbox or bluetooth. There are also other programs like Twonky or DoubleTwist that transfer media to your phone... somehow. Magic, I think. I just use bluetooth. There are many other ways, that's just a few.

Have you ever tried to use card reader to do this?
If your phone doesn't have an external storage, you can read the guide below.

If your phone/tablet has an SD card, there is a MUCH easier way to do this is:
1. Simply unmount your SD card on your device and then remove it
2. Plug the SD card into your computer's card reader
3. Add a folder called "Music" if one doesn't exist on the SD card
4. Move all the songs/albums you want from your Media Player library into the Music folder on the SD card (including album art)
5. Put the SD card back into your device, and your device reads the media on the SD card and you're ready to listen to all the music you just transferred.
