    Ok so no matter what I do, my Galaxy Note 3 is not recognized as device on my Mac.

    It does not show as USB device and neither it's detected by Android apps such as: Kies, Android File Transfer or Helium.

    The phone is charging when connected to the USB port.

    So what exactly is wrong. Is my Mac missing some drivers for this phone? I tried to install drivers via Kies but it still doesn't connect it.

    I'm running Snow Leopard 10.6.x

    Let me know if there are some OS-X settings I need to do or if I can download any drivers in order for my Note 3 to be recognized?

    Download Airdroid in the Play store and on your computer. So much better and wireless :)

    Yeah but it's using WiFi. Sucks to use Wifi to transfer Gigabytes of data.
