Default Kies Not Connecting

I received my Note 2 and downloaded Kies for my PC (latest version). When I connect the Note 2 via USB, I get a message saying that the device is not compatible. I have tried some suggested fixes (Remove/Replace SD card, uninstall/reinstall PC software, etc.) Nothing seems to work.

Has anyone experienced this on the Note 2 and found a solution?

Thanks, All!

I have the same problem. I did some searching and some have had problems with 64bit OS, but I do not know if that is what is causing my problem.

I use windows 7 64bit and its fine, perhaps its a problem with the usb drivers, open up device manager, find the phone and then click delete, then click scan for new hardware and windows will find the phone and install drivers, then open kies and try again, I also found that kies wouldn't connect if I had usb debugging enabled. Hope this helps.

I am in the same boat. i spent about an hour and a half online with "support" today. Finally he told me to call on Monday. He had me do basic stuff that i had already done, like different usb port, uninstall, reinstall, turn off firewalls, .. the works.

I have a tab2 7.0 and it connects fine, i have no idea how to make this work.

well, that was a waste of time. I sat on the phone for about 30 minutes to speak so someone who just parrot'ed everything i said to her back... without answering. Then She "checked the knowledge base." (another 10 min wait) then she "spoke to a supervisor." (another 10 min wait)

The final verdict:

"upper management knows about the issue. They are waiting to hear back from them. The problem is in the Kies software and 'should' be addressed soon."

They told me that i am on the list to be notified with updates to this issue. I will post them here if i receive any.

My issue with kies is that it says "must install java to download files"....though I have installed the latest version of java...uninstalled it and reinstalled it three times. No go. A quick google shows this is a known issue with no solution I can find.

I found a program that is doing the trick for movie and tv show transfers. Thanks though. My main hope with kies would be to somehow sync Notes. I am able to sync notes on my Tab2 7.0 with the notes from Outlook. I see no way to sync notes to outlook as it stands.

thanks

Have you updated the USB drivers from Samsung, released Nov.28th? Install is separate from Kies update.

I went to Samsung Support for my phone and clicked on "All Drivers". The only thing I saw was the manual .pdf. I did a search on "USB Drivers". Results?: Nada. Where did you find these USB driver downloads?

Thanks!

Sorry, it doesn't show up that way on my page. Just shows the manual. Perhaps it is specific to Verizon? Or perhaps it might recognize that I may have already made the update? Enquiring minds want to know!

Install Kies 3. After a while it will let you know that the connection failed. Leave the device connected and go to the menu bar and select tools, reinstall device drivers. It will reinstall and it should work fine from there.
