WiFi works, but USB doesn't. I have USB debugging on, but I get nothing. I am connecting a Mac to a Samsung Galaxy S5.

Unfortunately, Samsung SideSync only works with a Samsung laptop and a Samsung phone. You already have the Samsung phone part; but since your Mac is made by Apple, you won't be able to use SideSync to share your Galaxy S5's screen with your Mac. However, you are still able to share your Samsung Galaxy S5's screen with your Apple Mac computer. To do that, you will need to follow the instructions below:
