    my mac book does not recognize galaxy S at all.
    some people said I need to do USB debugging, but I donot know how to do it. I cannot find settings or development location in my mac book.
    Please help me!

    On your phone go to settings then Applications
    Select development and select USB Debugging.

    Once selected when you hook your phone to the Mac you will be able to select - copy files/folders and it will appear on your Finder.

    I must be missing something, as when I connect it up to my mac nothing shows, I have changed the to de-bugging in the phone settings and tried mass storage device, but nothing shows on the mac.....I thought it would show up on the desktop but it does not, do I need to press anything on the mac??

    Turned out I already checked USB debugging when I bought galaxy S lol.
    But, my Mac said "network connection: The communication device selected for your connection does not exist. Verify your settings and try reconnecting" again and again.
    Donot know what to do :(
    In Acvanced option, choose dialup or gsm/3g? ASN no?
    so frustrated..

    Just ignore that. Select 'copy files' in the dragdown header on your phone.
