How to mount MTP device as drive – MTP Driver for Mac – Connect Android Phone to Mac

1)Installing OSXFUSE from here: According to the site, OSXFUSE ”allows you to extend OS X’s native file handling capabilities via third-party file systems”. Just double-click the package file, insert your administrator password and install it.

2)Installing Command Line Tools for Xcode: open a terminal and type: xcode-select –install

3)Installing Homebrew, a nice package manager for OS X, similar to Debian’s Apt, Fedora’s Dnf,… You’ll need this to install easily libmtp and simple-mtpfs To install it, open a terminal window and paste: /usr/bin/ruby -e “$(curl -fsSL

4)Install libmtp and simple-mtpfs, and all their dependencies (automatically installed by homebrew) type in a terminal: brew install libmtp simple-mtpfs

5)create a mount point, on which the phone will be mounted. I created a folder under my home folder called simply “phone”

6)plug the phone with the usb cable, choose file transfer mode, then open a terminal and type: simple-mtpfs -f /Users/yourusername/desktop/phone/

7)Enjoy it! Now you should see your phone in the Finder window

Enable USB Debugging if not worked.

  • It doesn't work at the last step. Socket not connected is the error. I switched ports and the same "fuse: writing device: Socket is not connected". Help? Thanks!

  • It works for me, but is so slow as to be unusable. For example, it takes 2-3 minutes for finder to open my Card or Phone folder. Once open, it takes several minutes to open and show the next level, and more minutes for the one after that. Go deeper and it just fails to show any files at all. When mounted with the SyncMate app, Finder opens the folders almost instantly and never gets lost.

  • This is working to mount my new Garmin Fenix 5XPlus but I have two questions:
    1. I'd like to use -o fsname=5XPlus to mount it with that name but it always mounts as "OSXFUSE Volume 1 (simple-mtpfs)", how to fix this?
    2. How to make it mount automatically when plugged in?

  • Okay now I see my device like in you video but when I open it, I can see "Card" (my SD I assume) and "Phone" (Internal memory of my device I assume) and if I want to open those files, nothing happen, it's "empty" 🙁 Any suggestions ?

    Good vid by the way, quick and efficent.

    (I assume you have to paste the final command line every time you want to mount your phone ?)


    UPDATE :

    Sorry for the inconvenience, it's just I have 256 Go to load and it took a looooong time to show it up. Still, do I have to paste the command every time ? (I assume yes)

    I took so long so it crashed 🙁


  • I get LIBMTP PANIC: Trying to dump the error stack of a NULL device!, though adb devices list my device seamlessly
