Default 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!!!

Thanks for that, but that's not what I want to do. I want to use Kies to update my firmware and the PC does not recognise my Apollo as it seems not to have the drivers it needs.

There is no software update on kies for the unlocked apollo (i5800) on kies , samsung hasn't released it on kies in the uk (cpw). I know my wife has one.

If you want froyo better to update it manually through odin..

Mine connected with no problems. I've transferred files etc all ok.

Since updating Samsung Kies it doesn't connect now!!
