    This is the exact problem I'm having. It'll connect and go through the download process but once it gets to the point where it want to start downloading to my phone, the download window flashed for a second, then Kies starts reconnecting to my phone... then the whole process starts over.

    I have had this exact same problem. The phone connects, the firmware updates appears to download to the PC, and then when the phone should shut down to start updating, the software would disconnect then automatically reconnect. The firmware update menu pops up again and asks me if I want to update it.

    I found the issue must have been related to insufficient available space on the C: drive. The message originally alerted me that it needed 4400MB of available space, and I thought I had cleared that much out. However, I found that in reality the program needed something like 5 or 6GB of available space. Once I had deleted enough things, and rebooted enough times, and tapped my heels 3 times while facing east, the Android 4.3 update installed to my phone the very next time with no problem whatsoever.

    One last recommendation though, when the program seems to have finished, and it says to reboot the phone, unplug the cable and replug in the cable, don't do it. Just wait for your phone to finish rebooting by itself. I unplugged the cable when the Galaxy Note 2 splash screen showed up, and it froze there until I plugged the cable back in. I'm not sure what that is all about; try leaving it plugged in. Everything seems to have updated properly.

    I had all the issues above with KIES and more with Windows 7. Tried all the things people listed on the forums but still a very frustrating product refusing to synch, needed the phone to be reset and the PC restarted often to get a synch after many tries, updates were a trial etc. Then I decided to update my PC and move to Windows 8 at the same time just because my PC was 5 years old. Result - no more problems at all, synchs every time. I don't know if it is the new PC or Windows 8, but suspect the move to Windows 8 is the solution. So does anyone out there have an issue with KIES on Windows 8? I don't really want to know, but it would be interesting to see if the synch issues are confined mainly to Win7 and earlier.

    I have a Galaxy Note 2 sgh-t889, kies says there's an update available, and I go through the process, it says downloading on my phone and not to turn off target, but it doesn't go past there. A popup in Windows says it couldn't determine whether my phone was a built in battery or not. Why did it do that. I ended up unplugging the USB and restarted my phone and thankfully it started right back up with no loss. I'm afraid if I do it again it will lose everything. I have everything backed up. I just want to upgrade from 4.1.2 to 4.3. Should I try removing the SD card like previous posts?

    Kies 3 is a garbage. At least Odin is there to help us.
