Default Transfer music from Mac to Note 3

Most of my music is on my Mac but I noticed that you can't transfer music from a Mac to a Note since the drive won't come up. Is there a way to do it?

You will need to use Android File Transfer utility.

Hope this helps

Not a Mac but this should work with any OS - set up file sharing on your computer (Windows/Mac/Linux) to share the folder containing your music and then on your phone use ES File Explorer or another app that supports LAN servers to log on, then you don't even need to be at your computer to copy stuff to your phone as long as your computer is on and you're connected to the same network as the computer.

Kies does this for you. But I hate kies and don't use it personally. Double twist (music player) from market acts just like Itunes. You can try that it if you miss the iPhone type transfers.

Edit: but everyone else here mentioned correct answers. If you can't use android file transfer, probably because an old version of kies is blocking it. You have to download latest version and click uninstall, you can't just delete the app.

Yes, Kies (download the latest version) and it works flawlessly. Drag and drop.

* I don't get how some people are so bashful about Kies. The truth is it's simple, clean, straight forward and it WORKS.

Samsung Kies works fine. I like AirDroid better for all file transfers - music, pictures, documents etc.
