Android File Transfer not working for Samsung phone connected to Mac (or PC)? If you have Samsung Kies or Samsung Smart Switch installed, that’s the problem. Its drivers stop Android File Transfer from being able to connect to your phone. Uninstalling Smart Switch by dragging the app to the trash won’t work; you need to open the installation package (disk image – .dmg – file on Mac) and launch the uninstaller, which will let you remove the drivers as well. It sucks, but this is the only way you’ll be able to use File Transfer. I’m planning to keep it uninstalled, and just install intermittently to back up, then uninstall again.

If anyone knows how to get rid of “suggested contacts” list, I’d love to know! It’s astonishingly irritating to have this list of people I don’t have in my contacts show up above even my favourite contacts!
