Hi @nicardo 

I haven't connected my Samsung phone's to my MacBook Air force quite a while now but when I did I hooked up the phone using the data cable and used Android Transfer on my MacBook Air.

Daily Driver > Samsung Galaxy s²⁴ Ultra 512Gb ~ Titanium Black.

The advice I offer is my own and does not represent Samsung’s position.
I'm here to help. " This is the way. "

Hi there, Android File Transfer keeps bugging, can't open up my files with that. What else can i use? Just downloaded MobileTrans and Dex and that doesn't detect my phone either. Could it be the USB cable? When i bought the phone I got a charger cable that has a small connector on each side, so I need an older cable to usb my phone to the computer. I tried so many different cables though, and none work. Maybe i need to get a samsung origibal usb cable? what do you think?

This is exactly the problem!!!  Thank you for the suggestion.  Worked as soon as I quit Google Drive from running.
