    Are you using Kies and getting the 'spinning connecting' issue? I've used Kies recently (this past weekend) to synch my Phone Contacts with the OS X Contacts app, and completed a full backup. Not saying you don't have a valid issue, just trying to narrow down the particular apps and use case here.

    Yeah, ive downloaded the latest version and i also tried un-installing kies and re-installing using the older version 1.3.0.12093_4 connecting to the phone with genuine samsung cable and i still get just the spinning connection symbol. Having tried both connecting as PTP which shows nothing at all on the Macbook Pro, and also trying MTP which just shows 'connecting'. The phone is running Android 4.1.1 ( Build JRO03C.19305XXAL15 ) and is a Samsung GT-19305 the macbook pro is running OS X 10.8.2 (12C60). Has anyone got any ideas, i just cant find a sensible or functional 3rd party app (normally wifi and browser based) that allows me the speed i need to transfer files any suggestions would be appreciated to get USB connection working.

    Thanks Nashstruck for the downloading tip of Kies v. 1.3
    However I still get "Device not responding" with my Note (Phablet).
    Also re-installed drivers, same error.

    Agree, nice post by Nashtruck to start this off. By off chance did you let Kies do an autoupdate? The most current version is 2.0.0.12095_7
    I've also found that rebooting your Mac won't hurt after a Kies install. Another thing to check is if you have any other apps that may be trying to utilize the USB bus/path to your Note while trying to use Kies. Could be a conflict there.

    How did you get AFT to work with Mountain Lion? It won't detect my Galaxy S3.

    I've never been able to get AFT to work with Mountain Lion, but have seen cases where others have had no issues, or via a few workarounds gotten it to work.

    Could you point me in the direction of said workarounds?

    No luck for me either. Samsung Galaxy S3 ICS 4.0.4, Mountain Lion 10.8.2, Mac Mini Mid 2011. Kies for osx not detects any phone, neither via USB or Kies over WiFi. I tried various things found here and there. Nothing seems to help. And never will help with crap software. I wouldn't think that with a such a great phone there will be missing the most important part, the syncing software ... I do tried Kies Air but that's NOT the same thing as having a full fledged sync app on your desktop. I do like the idea of browser interface of Kies Air for jingling your phone but mostly for occasional browsing ... Cmmon Samsung you can do better than that ?

    @ jffmllr and Cyber Cow, this thread has a few workarounds buried intermittently throughout.

    Not the best state in my view. I've seen some other references here on the AC Forums, and if I run across them will post back. I've been using AirDroid and Kies. If I have more time over the holidays will see if I can get AFT to work and report back.

    What a pile of crap I also cannot sync my S3 to OS10.8.2 been trying all week but nothing works.

    iTunes with my former iPhone was a breeze to sync.

    There seems to be no solution here.

    Damn!

    Put your sd card into the computer, open it up. Open iTunes, copy n paste. It's simple. also, you are not using an I device anymore. Android is MUCH more advanced than IOS when it comes to customization. It takes a while to learn things.

    I have mine set up to sync at 2:00 am every night. It works brilliantly with no brain damage. I honestly don't even think about it except when to post about it here.

    iTunes is the gold standard IMO and drag and drop is not an option for me. Two way syncing automatically without having to connect is the way to go. It works as well as the iPhone sync, wifi sync when connected to a power source.
    I wouldn't let any IOS anything sync to my Gs3. Everytime iTunes updates on my computer, it gets a virus. My son has a damn iPod touch n I frikkin hate having iTunes on there. I drag n drop songs from real player on my computer, same with music videos. I don't like YouTube all that much and real player used to download videos from YouTube. Idk if it does anymore cuz I think I've been on my computer maybe 10 times n the last year. I have a tablet and an S3. Anywho, if you have an android, you can go into the play store and find free music downloaders. The music only takes a few seconds to download and it's free. It keeps anything from apple touching the glory that is android.

    Lightbulb Re: Kies for Mac and Mountain Lion Solution!

    Um Wierd! i have a 10.8 version and it was able to sync to our samsung galaxy S3 version perfectly w/o any updates you might wanna recheck your info

    Whoever needs help with this issue lemme know ill do some more research on my end.

    However this unarchiver its ridicuous how you have to dowmload a different format just to get kies to work on your mac. Samsung needs to
    update there system and not have to let us suffer the consequences of being ''outdated''. Its really unfair and simply cruel to the rest of the world.

    I am having the same issue with my MBP on OS X 10.8.3. I backed up my Galaxy S3 (SGH-i747) with Kies 2.0.0.13023_10 on 4/11/2013... Did a device reset yesterday and went to open Kies so I could restore my old data and BAM! just sits there saying "connecting"... I have uninstalled Kies, reinstalled, rebooted phone, removed battery for one minute (as some posts suggested), then reseated battery turned back on tried to sync with Kies.. Nothing... I have uninstalled and tried to install a previous version of Kies using the techniques that have been posted as a "workaround"... Nothing... I have changed USB cables, as well as swapped USB ports... nothing.... It just sits at "connecting"....... I have attempted Kies over WiFi... nothing... No mater what I do... "connecting"...... The interesting part is, when I disconnect the device Kies actually shows the SGH-i747 in the window as though it was connected. So I get excited and plug it back in and it's back to "connecting".......... It only shows the device when it's disconnected, but only for a very short period of time. And I can't do anything but look at it.

    I have the same issue and I have tried everything, Kies is not the issue and neither is it the phone, Its the mac, I think the issue here is with the driver that is in your s3, the mac cannot read the drive, and it is the current driver weather u go to update the driver or not you are at the most current one. The driver itself does is not supported by mountain lion.

    Same here, my galaxy s3 mini won't work. Tried syncmate and everything. The only thing I want to do is to upgrade my damn phone.

    It has nothing to do with your drivers. Samsung has screwed up on Mac Kies. Hopefully they'll update it.

    Hello,
    what do you mean by 'do work around kies' after the upgrade to 10.8?

    Thank you!
