That's why I posted this thread and am hosting the Kies file that is needed: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2035892

Thanks! I just googled kies, went to the official samsung/kies website, downloaded the program for my mac, opened up the download, ran the uninstall program, once done I plugged note 2 to my macbook pro via usb and viola! It worked perfectly without having to reinstall kies.

I found out that you cannot have Kies installed and android transfer installed on your Mac at the same time or else android transfer will not work.

Yes, you can't have KIES installed for it to work. It was posted in #5 that KIES must be uninstalled. Sometimes it helps to read the whole thread when there are only a few pages to read. =)

Use that app to connect your Note 2 to Mac OSX.
