    Go to your nearest Microsoft dealer and ask them for a copy of Windows 7.

    Sorry friend, I was joshing with you. No software at the momment for MAC.

    You could try virtual box on the Mac, or if your MAC can run Ultimate Bootdisk for Windows, boot from that and try.

    UBD4W is boot CD that runs Windows directly off the CD. No installation on your PC/MAC required.

    See UBCD for Windows for details.

    use virtual box to install xp on your mac, works well enough. I use parallels desktop on my macbook pro to run xp/ chrome/ ubuntu. very good
    the samsung software only lets you access the sd card anyway, so just use your mac to view mass storage.

    My spica doesn't mount on my macbook. It just charges, no USB notification menu to drag down and amend USB status. Any suggestions?

    I tried that for a few days and it just didn't work. I tried it again in frustration, a few days ago, and suddenly it did work!

    Don't bother waiting or using the samsung software either on windows or mac, it's useless.

    I recommend flashing (with odin) and rooting, so that you can use the android sdk on your mac. It's a bit of a hassle, but I haven't looked back since doing it.

    Basically set up a small bootcamp partition on your mac, install windows XP, flash with odin then you don't need to use windows again (unless you plan to re-flash the phone). I tried using Virtual Machines, but they are ridiculously slow and I didn't trust them when doing something as potentially risky as flashing a handset.

    You don't even need to buy a copy of XP as you are allowed to use it for FREE for 30 days without having to activate it. Once you've finished with the bootcamp partition, just remove it. If you do feel the need to re-flash the handset just create a new bootcamp partition and install XP again. But I doubt you would have to, as once the handset has been rooted you can install updates from the SD card.
