    MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2014). El Capitan.

    Flash drives work OK, but Samsung S3 mini and Trust headset aren't recognised. I've tried both USB ports and reset the SMC.

    Any ideas?

    Ta.

    I surely don't know much about this Samsung but does it require any software to synch?

    On windows it just shows as a drive. The problem isn't lack of s/w to sych or whatever, it just doesn't appear anywhere on the Mac. Ditto the h/s which is more of an issue.

    Does the headset require drivers of any kind?

    If you open Audio/MIDI Setup, can you see the headset?

    Does the drive "show up" in Disk Utility's window?

    It's described as working on OSx - maybe not El Cap though!
    No, not in any of the audio device lists
    Not in the Disk Util window, nor listed in 'Sys Report > USB'

    Just noticed the phone wasn't even charging. Moved it to the other (RHS) USB and it's now charging. Still not detected though.
