Problem linking Apollo to my PC
I have a Galaxy Apollo and a Compaq Netbook running Windows 7 (32-bit). I would like to connect the Apollo to my PC via USB to update my handset. I should add that it is on Android 2.1 and unlocked from CarPhone Warehouse.
I installed Kies on my PC, but I don't seem to be able to get the Kies/PC to see the handset. I get the window saying "Please connect a device"
When I look in my Windows devices and printers, if the handset is connected vis USB, the PC reports seeing "Samsung Android", but in the properties, it reports No Driver Installed.
I can't find a way for Kies to see my device wi-fi either, nor can I find any Samsung drivers for the Apollo using Google.
Anybody got any ideas on how to move this forward?
Edit:- I have just plugged in my partner's Galaxy S2 and Kies, after loading down drivers, found it perfectly amd even offered to upgrade her software.
Tried my Apollo again - nothing!!!
