I have a Macbook and the U3 is not detected AT ALL by it. I tried for a few days without luck. It charges up (erratically) but it doesn't show up anywhere in OSX 10.4.9. Using Boot Camp, WinXP detects it, but it's only usable with the Samsung software or Windows Media Player.

I called up Samsung Australia and they told me to return it to the store (JB HiFi), so I did and got a refund. Very disappointing because it is the best little thing I've seen. The only thing missing is MSC/UMS support. I don't want DRM music!

Anyhow, to repeat, DO NOT buy the U3 if you have a Mac. What they say on some websites about it working as UMS if you have a Mac is bull. Samsung Support themselves say this isn't true or supported or even tested.

I hope UMS firmware is possible one day, though I had no way to even copy the firmware onto the U3!

Hope this helps.
