    Recently got myself an HTC One Mini as a secondary phone and found that simply plugging it into my G5 would only show an Intel only coded HTC Transfer program. In other words no way to see my photos, iPhoto etc also would not see anything of course.

    Started Googling and tried "Android File Transfer" which is PPC but this just kept crashing immediately after starting (a common problem with some newer Android phones apparently).

    Finally came across an Android App called "DROID NAS", which is free and it works perfectly. Turns your phone into a memory stick for transferring files but using your WIFi and not the USB.

    Just as an FYI in case anyone else has the same problem, my old Android didn't need anything at all so seems it will only affect certain (newer?) phones.

    If you want to sync anything, you can try Eltima Syncmate. You can get that over at They still make a PowerPC version and Syncmate has a button that will mount both an SD card and internal memory as a drive.

    Eltima has a free version of Syncmate and a paid version.
