The problem isn't a lack of usb storage drivers for the Mac - OSX works out if the box with devices which support usb mass storage. The problem is that that is deprecated in Android, and its replacement, MTP, is a Microsoft thing, and isn't included with OSX or Linux.

The answer is to install Google's Android File Transfer tool on the Mac. On my phone so no link, but Google it and it will be the top result.
