How To Install And Connect Your Galaxy Tab To A Mac Computer Using Mac Kies


Samsung Kies support Mac 10.5 ~ 10.7, but not 10.8 (for now). So I made this tutorial: How to install Samsung Kies on Mac OS X 10.8 and Connect Galaxy Tab to Mac Computer Using Mac Kies.

First of all, view a user issue on this:


“I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. And recently I updated my MacBook Pro from 10.7 to Mountain Lion 10.8. When I opened the Kies App it told me there was an update, I selected update, and then I got an error message saying unknown OS version, and now I can’t even sync my Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 with my MBP running on Mountain Lion. The Mac could recognize my tablet when I run the OS 10.7 Lion and the older version of the Samsung Kies App. Is this a Mountain Lion OS issue or a Samsung Kies issue?”


“I have a Samsung Galaxy Note and it cannot be sync to my macbook pro running on Mountain Lion Ver 10.8 OS. I have updated its Kies and even used the older ver of the Kies App, and still could not update my Galaxy Note to my mac. With the older ver of the Kies, it could be updated but ever since the new updates on Kies and samsung website, Mac could not recognise my Galaxy Note.
I have brought my Note to Samsung Tech Support in SIngapore, where i live and asked them to help me. They could not!! But the phone could only be recognised on the Windows software n Windows OS. What I suspect is that Kies may have issues on Mac drivers for Kies app for Mac softwares. Samsung tech support has yet to get back to me on this issue and it has been 2 days. Sigh…….. Pls help!! Thank you!”

Part One. How To Install Samsung Kies on Mac 10.8?

    I don’t know about the galaxy Y much, so I codlun’t compare these two.But after I have gone through few reviews I bought Samsung Wave Y and I am very dissatisfied with this phone.Apart from the disadvantage that, it doesn’t support more apps because of it bada operating system, I is not working in lots of situations as a simple phone.I codlun’t answer the phone some time, the green bar get strucked; I had to restart the phone.The micro speaker gives very bad quality in sound.The signal goes off suddenly and after some time when I noticed that I am not getting call what I am expecting, then I used to realize that the phone is not taking the signal and I had to restart.When I select network automatic mode, it can’t switch between GSM and UMTS (3G) properly, instead I goes to emergency calls only mode.And I am not sure about the reason but I codlun’t open my office web mail in the browser in this phone, may be the browser is not sending a secured request (but I used to check my companies web mail in my last phone and the major reason I went for this smart phone is to access companies web mail which I am not able to do now.)So like this I have faced issues with this phone, so guys please take a while before you buy this phone.

    An interesting discussion is worth comment. I believe that you need to publish more on this issue, it might not be a taboo subject but typically people do not speak about these subjects.
    To the next! All the best!!
