The Galaxy Tab S 10.6 seems to use MTP as USB connection mode. Since Mac OS X doesn't support MTP, your Mac can't see your device. I suppose that your Note has Micro SD card installed, and your Tab doesn't. If your Tab has a Micro SD card, it might be able to connect with your Mac.

For your question, I suggest using Airdroid (the first version) or anything similar to it. Since it transfers your file via LAN, transfer speed is a lot faster. Hope this help ;)

  • Thanks for that yep the Tab also uses the micro-SD card - i've given airdroid a try seems to work well, thanks so much
