    Hey,

    I just got my first Android phone, a Samsung Spica i5700, and I'm trying to connect it via USB to my iMac 27", running Mac OS X Snow Leopard.

    When I try to connect it to my Windows PC it works just fine, however when connecting it to my Mac, nothing seems to happen, neither on my Mac nor my phone, other than the phone getting charged.

    Googling for help didn't being up any working solution.

    Can anyone help me?

    Turn usb debugging on when you are connecting it to the mac.

    Settings > Applications > Development > Turn on usb debugging.
