    I have tries to connect my GN2 to my mac with little success. Does anyone know how to do this? Also can you fix it so the email attachments go to the SD card? Thanks for your help.

    Uninstall Kies if you have it on your computer already. Then download Android File Transfer. Works for me.

    Android File Transfer can never find my phone, cycles with the" cannot connect to device, try reconnecting or restarting device." Kies for Mac works correctly, first and every time. (mt lion)

    Don't get me wrong if Kies works for you then you don't need Android File Transfer. I just don't care for Kies. Android File Transfer will give you that prompt you're getting if you still have Kies installed. That's why I said to uninstall Kies.

    AFT has been failing on a number of Mountain Lion installs with a number of phones where Kies was never involved, as I mentioned above.

    Are you saying that you've got AFT working with Mountain Lion?

    If so, which Mac?

    Oh wow I hadn't heard of any other problem with AFT other then Kies. Yes AFT works fine for me. I'm running ML on a late 2008 15.4" MBP.

    I had aft installed on my Mac and it didn't work. I then installed kies and that started syncing files on the Mac but the phone did not show up.
