  1. I have a mac computer and an android phone and I have been trying to use android file transfer but it isnt working, and I was wondering if any one else has had this issue before what have you done to make it work? it says " cannot connect try restarting or reconnecting your phone".

    I would guess that the Mac firewall is not allowing FTP ports 20 &21

    HUH? Macs don't use an uninstaller! Not certain the Android does either . . .

    Yes, the quickest path to a solution would be using a PC

    Because it is a Mac! Apple doesn't like android! Why Would they allow someone to file transfer from a android device!
