    have ou tried downloading the mac version here http://www.samsung.com/us/kies/

    dam samsung even copied itunes app. :rolleyes: everything from the layout and even the phone info page screams itunes knock off.

    I don't care if they continue to copy, just wish they admit it already. they can't get away with synonomous resemblance to common objects and colors as a defense here. It's completely obvious that sammy was aiming for the itunes look and feel so that iphone or ipod users will feel right at home.

    Off topic, but look up Songbird for desktop and Spotify. Both have a very iTunes-esk look and feel to them :p

    Kies looks nothing like iTunes. It's horrible software.

    i never use kies. i just manually copy music.

    Kies is like iTunes in the ipod days. Slow, and useless.

    Itunes is bad (on PC, anyway), Samsung Kies is the DEVIL.

    I downloaded it about 1-2 years ago and it caused all sorts of problems with my PC (like disabling all of my USB devices).

    Don't use Kies... it sucks.

    Thank you all for your replies, for the moment I have given up with kies it just won't work with mountain lion. I have decided the easiest way to get files from the phone is to just plug it into my imac and open it up in finder and copy whatever I need to the desktop.
