Well it seems that OSX won’t recognise any Samsung phones. A bit disappointing given their TV adds on how Macintosh is friendly with everything! I rang Samsung and they said ‘we don’t support macintosh’
So to get my samsung D900i working on OSX I had to do this: (I’m not suggesting you do it for whatever reasons like you might sue me if it doesn’t work, but it worked for me).
1. Download this file: D900iUSB.pkg.zip
2. Run it
3. Put some memory in the mobile phone miniSD slot because it is only the external memory that the phone uses as a USB drive. (I got 2G for $25 so it’s pretty cheap)
4. Go into the USB settings on the phone and set it to USB mass media, not USB modem.
3. Plug in your Samsung D900i and wow, it mounts AND itunes now recognises it and imports the photos automatically!
Note: if you want to SYNC your samsung D900i that is a separate issue, look here.
