I got an answer from Samsung technical support

"In order to allow for compatibility between the Windows 7 computer and your phone you must download from the Microsoft website VIRTUAL WINDOWS XP. Please be aware that this will only work for Windows 7 64 bit Professional, Enterprise and Ultimate."

So, you need to download WindowsActivationUpdate.exe using IE only (Firefox won't work because once activated a cookie is needed by IE.)



Kies (80MB)

Install the lot and possibly reinstall the USB driver via the Kies troubleshooter.

Then and only then will this phone be detected. What a palaver.

BTW, it takes about 2 minutes to connect to the phone using Kies and file transfer between Kies and the
Galaxy Mini GT-S5570 phone is painfully slow.

Why there is no version of the USB driver or Kies for Windows 7 64 bit and Samsung want to send us back into the wonderful world of XP I have really no idea.
