If you are using a Mac computer and an Android phone, Google provides a useful tool called Android File Transfer to transfer photos, videos and files between the devices.

I installed the app on my MacBook Pro and it worked really well until suddenly I saw the error when connecting my Android phone (Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and Galaxy S8) to the Macbook.

Could not connect to device

If you still have trouble connecting the phone to a Mac with Kies installed, try: Updating the Kies application; Enable/Disable USB debugging in the phone settings; Get a more solid USB cable ( the factory one is very unreliable and even if the phone is charging it may not connect as a storage device ). After downloading it, you should install it on your Mac and then connect your Android phone to the Mac using data cable. Now from the notification menu enter Settings on your android device. Then go to Wireless & Networks on your device as shown on the left side of the above picture where you will have to touch on Tethering & Portable Hotspot.

Try reconnecting or restarting your device


I tried some solutions suggested by Google like trying different USB cables, rechecking MTP, restarting devices, enabling the USB Debugging option under Developer options but they didn’t work. After some research, I found out that the issue came from Kies drivers that I might have installed in the past. Here is how to remove those drivers and make Android File Transfer work again.

3. Connect your Android phone to your Mac via the supplied USB cable. All content from your phone and memory card should show up and you can drag and drop to transfer files now.

Let me know if you have any problem resolving the issue.
