    Mac's don't work like Windows PC's. I'm on both. Easiest way to do this is to setup a Google drive account and you can sync files that way, up to 15 GB for free. Google has a client for Android and OS X. I have it on PC, OS X and Android. Works well and no screwing around connecting a cable...

    Hey there... Have a 13" Mac running 10.9.2 and use Android File Transfer without a hitch. After plugging in the USB cable the phone will be seen, though you'll have to click on the USB symbol from the notifications panel and then select media. AFT launches automatically and you'll then see tabs for phone or card. Works grovey.
    I still use AirDroid, (wifi connection) though, it runs really slow....
    Enjoy and good luck. Xoxo
