Hi All

I have an i9505 and use a MacBook Pro with Mavericks. Mac won't pick up the device as a USB at all. Have tried the following, with no success...

1. Loaded Kies
2. Loaded Android File Transfer
3. Tried numerous cables

What else can I try?

By default, MTP is enabled and won't mount in OSX.
Kies should allow you to transfer files, make sure you're using latest version and reinstall drivers from it.
If using a hub, try connecting the S4 directly at the MacBook.

From a custom recovery (TW or CWM), you can also mount the sd card.

As last resort install AirDroid (free on play google) which will allow you to connect and transfer files using wifi and a browser.
