Unable to Setup Android Device on Mac

I am facing an issue where I have managed to run the app on emulator but when I connect my Android device, it does not show in the available devices in Xamarin Studio. What do I have to do to get it accessible? (I am working on a Mac).


PS: This is the same device that I use for debugging on my Windows machine without any trouble.

    I basically have two physical Android devices that I use for debugging, one is Samsung Galaxy Core 2 Smartphone and the other is Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet. I was earlier trying to debug on Core 2 but my Mac did not see it connected (hence asked the question) however I just connected Note 10.1 and it is immediately visible under the 'Physical Devices' of Xamarin Studio and I managed to debug my app on it. I tried comparing the Developer Options for both devices but found them pretty identical.

    What can be the difference that is making Note 10.1 show but Core 2 remains undetected?

    Thank you all!
