I have tried everything I could but galaxy S won't connect to Kies.
I have installed & unistalled the software sevral time for a couple of weeks without any luck.
Kies recognise the connection once phone is plugged, however it on the kies screen top right hand side, it says device connecting - please wait. and that's it for ever. it remains so and won't connect. I leave it for hours sometimes hoping it would but never connect.
I have deleted any all application on my laptop that may be conflicting with samsung kies and still have the problem
the USB driver had been installed successfully without any problem.
i had the same problem but just stumbled upon a way to fix it... do not start kies first, connect your phone to the computer and let it recognize the phone (it'll show up in "My Computer"). then start kies... I tried this 10 times and always successful...
It took me a while to get to the stage you're at with Kies. It's crap software but there are always things to try.
If Kies keeps saying "Connecting...", I hit the eject icon, unplug the phone and try again. When I do this it connects without even displaying any information in Kies - the phone says Connected though and Kies can interact with my phone like "normal".
