    1. Plug phone into computer with provided USB cable.
    2. Pull notification blind down on Droid, push "USB connected" and then "Mount".
    3. The SD card should appear as an external USB drive in "My Computer" if in Windows or on the desktop if in Mac OS.
    4. Create a folder on the SD Card named "Music" if it doesn't already exist and drag and drop anything you want in there.
    5. (not absolutely necessary but recommended) Safely remove hardware using the system tray icon in windows, or drag the SD card drive to the trash in Mac OS
    6. Unmount in the notification blind.

    ya have two options, you can mount the sd card and use windows explorer to drag-n-drop the file on there, or go to motorola web site and download Motorola Media Link...... Motorola Media Link - Motorola USA

    While there are more geeky ways to sync, I think you should look into the DoubleTwist app. I don't recall ever needing a CD to sync the Droid to the PC...

    Do you use iTunes? There's the iSyncr app...otherwise others have pretty much answered your question.

    Also, just a random aside, there's a great app called AutoMount that would remove steps 1 & 2 from nstallion's (useful) guide. :)

    Edit: well just step 2 actually, lol.

    One more thought:
    Web Sharing app
    Allows moving files via wireless or the internet (less secure) to your pc
