I have installed Kies from Samsung but it does not see my Samsung phone.
I have tried this but unarchiver won't open the file..
1.Download Samsung Kies: http://j.mp/dlkiesz
2.Open the DMG
3.Right click on the "kies20mac_s9218.pkg", then open it with "The Unarchiver"
4.You should see a file named "kies20mac_s9218", open it.
5.Right click on the "contents.pkg", and click "Show Package Contents"
6.Double click "Payload", it will create a folder named "Payload 2 2", double click it.
7.Double click "Applications", then you will see Kies, drag it to the application folder, installation complete!

Note, I'm about to go on a rant (not directed at you though): Whoever gave you those instructions, to be blunt, has no idea what they're doing. Those aren't even close to what you should do. First, why go to some weird obfuscated URL? The app can be found here: Kies | SUPPORT | SAMSUNG. Second, why would you need to explore the pkg file? What purpose does this serve?
Install it as you would any other Mac application. Download it from the right place, double click the installer and enjoy.

I think I agree with your rant Van. I can think of few instances where the average user needs to monkey around with the contents of an app package ff the app is designed with the Mac in mind.
That's essentially what the OP is being asked to do. I'd be a little upset at any vendor's software that required me editing the package to get the software to run. Obviously that is not the case here. If it were I would take it as a sign that it's time to look for new gear. Preferably something with better Mac support.Sylvester Roque Former Contributing Editor About This Particular Macintosh
