Like every other Android-powered phone on the planet, the Droid can have its hunger for your music, video, and pictures satisfied by the ol’ drag-and-drop method of transferring files. But, if you picked up a Motorola Droid and your 16GB microSD card is still yearning for your iTunes media library, Motorola has kindly decided to give your index finger a rest with its Motorola Media Link software.
