In my i9000 (DXJF4), there are no file with long extension, but still can't connect to the latest kies 18.104.22.16874_2
My laptop (vista 32-bit, UAC turned off, all Samsung drivers were successfully installed) can detect the phone properly. No errors in Windows' Device Manager. Can connect to the phone using 'USB debug mode on' + 'USB mass storage' and transferring files via Windows' Explorer.
But everytime I connect the phone using USB for Samsung Kies, the phone is going crazy and Kies is trying to "connect to media" for ever...
How to upgrade the firmware (or the OS?) if I can't connect to the phone using Kies? I read that upgrading the firmware using Samsung Kies is the easiest way.
