I don't understand (am not able to understand) your reply, but thanks for doing some quick and dirty investigative work into this. As a Mac user, and a newbie to the EVO, I am surprised about this lack of attention to things that should be straightforward. If my Canon DSLR suffered from the same issue, you can bet that Canon would address this....PRONTO! Yes, it is rather easy to pop out the micro card and put it into a reader/adapter, however those cards are fragile, and can easily be lost in the grass or blown away with a gust a wind. I would rather the cable solution worked, as diagrammed in the manual.Sounds like a driver problem for Apple. Windows computers load several drivers for com ports, serial ports and enumerate the Evo as an MTP and a Video Camera device when attached to the computer.
Some research on the part numbers I have done on my Evo indicate this USB port on the Evo is attached to a Cypress USB based board that is crammed with all the IC's/sensors that make up the Evo with Samsung memory.
I am not sure exactly what Cypress Embedded product I am pinging here ... EZ-USB, FX2 or what.
Here's a link to their line-up that I found:
I think compiling a driver would be possible. This line of products can be developed using Windows, Mac or Linux environments - using the respective software SDK's from Cypress -- for example.
So if there are various SDK's -- I am sure the source to a driver may be obtainable? I see reference more towards Linux here, but Macintosh and Linux drivers have to be compiled usually -- so I see someone say use FX3 drivers here mentioning making for Linux :
So I find the FX3 SDK - and viola! There is an SDK for Windows, Mac and Linux...

The manuals can be found there too.
Maybe someone just needs to whip out their skills and offer up a driver based on CyUSB3.inf and CyUSB3.sys in the Windows environment ported to the Mac OS.
