Can't connect your HTC Sensation (or other HTC phones) to Mac? Well, connecting HTC devices to Windows computers is quite simple, but to connect HTC to Mac, things turn out to be a little tricky. This article will show you how to sync HTC to Mac (Lion included) step by step. In addition, it can be done without any third-party applications.
To hook up HTC Evo, HTC Sensation, HTC Flyer, HTC Vivid, HTC Desire etc. or other Android devices with your Mac, multiple steps are required:
Note: To connect HTC to Mac (Mountain Lion, Lion included), you only can mount your HTC as a disk drive and the article here would help you to manage files such as music, movies, photos, etc. between your HTC and Mac including HTC to iTunes, HTC to iPad.
Go to "Setting" and choose "Applications"
Click the "Development"
Here you need to tick the three items: USB debugging, Stay awake, Allow mock location, or you will be unable to copy your files on the SD card to Mac (Snow Leopard included).
Click "USB connected", and select the "USB debugging connected:" and then click "Mount"
Note: Some HTC phones like HTC Sensation here may present you a notice like this:
"Allow USB debugging?
