I can verify that this version works with Windows 7 32-bit & 64-bit.
Download the latest Samsung Kies Version 1.5.1
(Release Date 18, August 2010)
It doesn't work for me - still won't connect via Kies. Win7 64. It was working when I had some samsung USB driver for mobiles installed but I deleted that because I thought it was screwing up my attempts to update the phone to the JM1 firmware - this is another problem I'm having with this phone, as far as I'm aware there is a new JM1 firmware which is meant to fix the lag issue and improve the gps/wi-fi; when I had the dam thing working with Kies (using the samsung mobile driver) it just kept telling me my firmware was the latest one - It's running on JF3 at the moment. It's an unbranded unlocked handset.
I haven't done any of the internal sd card wipe stuff etc but I really don't want to because I have all my contacts and accounts set up on it now.
I'm starting to hate this phone - the Kies software is beyond crap and it seems I can upgrade the phone to fix some of the issues it has (only I can't because when I try to it tells me I have the latest version).
This is beyond a joke Samsung.
