    If you gave a mac why not use Android File Transfer?
    This will let you use your internal storage for drag and drop file transfer including pictures and music or whatever.

    Yes, i have already researched the **** out of it. After upgrading to El Capitan it just stopped working. I remember seeing some Samsung drivers somewhere while still on Yosemite. Now I'm wondering if those drivers were removed when doing an upgrade.

    Thanks :) it's just so annoying since this is the fastest way to transfer files.

    So i used Pacifist and extracted driver from the Kies app which doesn't work under 10.11. Now Android File Transfer works.


    Thanks.

    Doesn't OS X support SMB file sharing? Just create a shared folder on OS X then use Solid Explorer app from the Galaxy S6 to move files over WIFI. If you want the S6 to be the file server you can use DavDrive then browse or map to it from Mac/Windows. No drivers needed.
