    OP this may or may not work for you, many MAC users like myself still cannot get Android File Transfer to work

    I use Kies opposite to the instuctions in the youtube video you want to be in MTP mode not PTP

    click the folder next to either internal or external storage and you will get a window like this

    now you can add files to any folder on the phone you like or vice versa
