Android File Transfer Issue


I am trying to transfer a few files from my Android phone (Galaxy S8) back to my MBP (macOS 10.13.5). However, the Android file transfer app won't detect the device. Any other alternative for managing Android device on Mac?

Make sure your phone is still connected to your computer , and check to see if your USB debugging has been turned on ,
That has been addressed in a post above. :confused:


Since Android File Transfer hasn't been updated for several years, it may not support the latest Android OS versions or work incorrectly with them. You'll need third-party solution to transfer or sync data between Mac and your Android. The one I can advise is SyncMate, it works perfectly with all Android OS versions (no matter which model you own) and Mac computers. Check it out, they have free version
