Android Gurus, Please help. Can't access my new Note2's filesystem with my Mac.

Can someone please help me here?

I have a Note 2 and I have been trying for the last 2 weeks to get a reliable way to transfer my data back and forth from my Mac. I tried Android file Transfer it doesn't work.

KiES worked once then it stopped. It will let me connect and I can see the Note 2's file system but trying to drag and drop a file to my desktop does nothing.

Some people suggested using Airdroid but thats not useful to me because I don't have a decent wifi connection. I fail to believe there is no way to do this can someone please help me?
