But now im having problems with connecting kies, it recognizes that my phone is connected but will not connect to it. It has been sitting for 20+mins.

    Default Re: PC not recognizing Galaxy anymore

    I always go into device manager and uninstall the driver then plug in and have it reinstall. Its a pain in the arse but thats they only way I can get it to work. I also try switching usb ports and that seems to help sometimes. I'm in the same boat as you. Even installing the samsung driver does not help either. Hopefully there will be a fix for that.

    I was having the same problem. I tried installing updates on my windows 8, changing the settings on my phone, restarting my galaxy phone and PC. NOTHING worked so i decided to change the USB CABLE and I went through 4 different ones until one finally worked. Two did nothing when connected, one charged but didn't recognize the PC and the last one finally worked! WEIRD! But I have always downloaded pics from my phone to PC so i knew something had to be up... I wasn't using the same USB cable apparently.
