There are a few options here, let's do the easiest first:
USB Debuggingis enabled on the device.
/System/Library/Extensions/Heimdall.kextand reinstalling Heimdall
sudo kextload /System/Library/Extensions/heimdall.kextif you get an error then point 3 is your error!
sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/heimdall.kext
Finally this is more general for other users. If you are using a Mac OS run the following:
$ sudo kextunload -b com.devguru.driver.SamsungComposite $ sudo kextunload -b com.devguru.driver.SamsungACMData $ sudo kextunload -b com.devguru.driver.SamsungACMContro
