Thread: How do I connect to a Mac?

  1. #1

    How do I connect to a Mac?

    I have a Macbook Pro with Mac OS X 10.6.4 and have just got the Samsung Galaxy S. I cannot get it to connect to the Mac.
    Samsung don't do a Mac version of their software and it doesn't show up in Mass Storage mode.

    Has anyone managed to get them talking?

    Cheers

    Just a note : I've upgraded to Froyo and mass storage mode works with my mbpro without having to turn on USB debugging.

    If you cannot see the memory card of the phone on the Mac, how are you sending photos from the computer to the phone? Is it by bluetooth? If so, you can use the same technique to send photos (or any file) on the phone back to the Mac.

    If you are usng Bluetooth, you would already have paired the phone to the Mac. Then, in the Bluetooth menu on the Mac, look for the phone in the menu and select "Browse" from that Bluetooth menu. On Snow Leopard, it says "Browse Samsung.." not sure how it was on Leopard, been a while! You will then get the Mac's Bluetooth File Browser open which lets you navigate the phone memory looking for the right folder. The phone puts camera files in the "DCIM" folder to match the standards used by typical digital cameras. You will see your photos and you can drag/drop them back to the Mac.

    But, on the phone, you need to first open the "My Files" program, navigate to the DCIM folder, then press the Settings button on the phone. Press the "More" button to see more options and select Bluetooth Visibility. You now enable/disable visibility for the photos. The onces which are visible are the only ones which will be shown to the Mac's Bluetooth File Browser. It may sound cumbersome, but this is a security feature to stop devices that are legitimately paired to your phone having access to data which you would still rather keep private...!

    I still cannot connect my Galaxy sII to my mac even after turning off the debugging button. I've tried the tethering thing and it's saying there is no USB device connected. Any ideas?

    I am new to Android and I have this same problem but I do not have the path specified. I'm sorry if I'm missing something here but I really need help with this.

    I cannot go to
    goto settings-applications-development-turn on debugging mode.

    because I don't have the root settings folder??? what am I doing wrong it is driving me crazy.

    OS X 10.6.4
