Can someone please help me. I have done the Kies uninstallation many times (the correct way), at least 8 times. IT DOES NOT WORK. Android File Transfer will NOT read my galaxy s4. It will read my brother's, and it will read my sister's galaxy s4 but not mine.
I really don't want to have to reset my phone. Anyone have any suggestions? Maybe something within my galaxy?
Already set the Media mode....allowed usb debugging... nothing works!
I had the same problem and tried everything. Trying to find a solution for months. I ended up using Airdroid on the Samsung S4 and I could transfer files nicely. Just avoid to long file names. I hope that does it for you to.

I've run into the same thing. The issue appears it might be with Google.
I'm running Nexus 7 tablet with Android 4.4.2 and the latest update of OS X Mavericks.
Android File Transfer says there's no device present.
I make a change on the tablet (enabling USB debugging, which requires developer mode to be turned on) and if I use Google's ADB command from Android Software Developer's Kit (SDK), then I'm able to connect just fine to the tablet. Android File Transfer still does not work.
If one piece of Google provided software works and another does not through the same connection, then I'm inclined to believe that Google needs to fix this.
No changes were made on the mac to do this.
Just my 2 cents.
I did try pairing with my laptop through bluetooth and the tablet said it couldn't accept file transfers.
