Default GT-N7000 and kies don't like each other

is it just me or does anybody else have trouble connecting their note to kies via usb cable?.

connects fine over kies air but not happy with the very limited functions of air, so wanted to connect to pc version of kies.

tried all different ways for example usb debug task killing etc.... but still get the same error

reconnect device in samsung kies (pc studio) mode.

anyhelp would be most appreciated as im still not sure weather any updates will come via kies or through about phone/software update as other people have mentioned getting updates recently for gingerbread but i havent had any since i bought my note 3 month ago.

I had issues with mine.
I had to ensure Disable USB debugging Mode was un-ticked for it to work with Kies PC software.

Also, on one of the PCs I had to do the following:
Disconnect the phone
Open Kies
Got to Tools -> Troubleshoot Connection Error
Restart PC

The connection error trouble shooter removes and re-installs the drivers and things. It may not explicitly tell you to restart the PC but I did anyway just in case. All worked fine after that.

On the updates front I got all of my updates OTA, including one a couple of days ago that was mentioned here. I'm in the UK.

well quick update.....using an old netbook on xp finally managed to get note and kies to let bygons be bygons and start getting along with one another ;-)...however kies is now saying "your device does not support software upgrading via kies" im like wtf!!!
so i don't get updates via OTA (as people have been talking about recieving updates to gingerbread but not me ????)
and kies is saying i won't get them that way either....
i am seriously getting close to putting my bloody note up on ebay and buying a tried and tested (dare i say it) ip4s.

I bought my note yesterday and had this same issue at first. Even re-installed Kies and Drivers to no avail. However while browsing the settings menu of my note I found the option to connect to "Kies via WiFi". I tried this and indeed, my phone connected successfully.
A short while later I had disconnected from Kies wifi but Kies was still running on the PC, I connected my phone using the USB cord with the sole intention of charging it. What do you know, but kies registers the phone almost instantly.

If anybody is having issues, try this... don't know if it will work for anyone else or if it was just a happy coincidence, but can't hurt to try .

While I had a few issues with the Nokia PC suite it did seem to work a lot better than kies and have many more options and be far more flexible with what you could do.

I was a big fan of Nokia for a long while and only moved to Android when it was confirmed that the meego N9 was not coming to the Uk.

I am seriously impressed with the Samsung phone technology but their PC connectivity appears to be a little hit and miss. I am not sure if this is due to restrictions with the Android OS or what but I also know that kies takes a good minute longer than PC suite did and has less functionality and is far less intuitive to use.

Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't swap back but I think Samsung need to apply their phone magic to the Kies PC app after a sly butchers at the Nokia PC Suite (devinitely not the Ovi Suite which was just an evil disaster).

Really, out of the box you should be able to plug your phone in via USB and it connect. If it cannot then it should tell you which option (usually USB debugging) you should change to allow connection.

I had been using Wi-Fi with no problem, so I tried the USB cable and had the PC STUDIO error. so I disabled USB DEBUGGING and it works fine, as mentioned a few posts above.

Default Kies disaster

I read so many threads to disable USB debugging, reboot (with/without SIM/microSD), uninstalled all USB and BT from PC (W7-X64) uninstall/reinstall Kies, and still KIES gives me this message not to be able to connect to my N7000.
There was a little KIES update which started to ask for the right phone, but the N7000 was not even listed!.
What a nightmare! Al other phones I have used worked like a charm to connect and sync. Here I sit with a 500 Euro Galaxy Note which even does not have my contacts!

I do think it confusing as well that people just refer to "Disable USB debugging"

Sometimes they mean to untick the box and sometimes tick it since ticking the box actually disables USB debugging when the screen is off.

For Kies to work the box must be unticked. Unfortunately connecting it in the wrong mode then may corrupt the drives so when you change it back it still does not work. My checklist on failure is..

Disconnect phone.
Ensure the USB Debugging box is un-ticked.
In Kies go to Tools->ToubleShoot connection errors
When done try again

wohooo guys....after tryin more times than it took to conceive the kids i finally got my N7000 to connect to kies (have usb debugging unticked and it installed cdm drivers or something like that lmao)
EIRA007 make sure kies is uptodate, usb debugging unticked, connect note to pc first and all drivers will be installed THEN start kies, should find your phone then...hopefully lol.
but guess what?????????????????

under basic information it says "your device does not support software upgrading via kies" WTF!!!!!!!!!!!
i think i now would love to meet the guy/girl who developed this piece of sh*t software and kick them squarely in the tallywacker/twinkle for wasting my time....but heyho least i can stick to NOT using it anymore and wait for the OTA upgrade to ICS and if that is poo too, god forbid i ever see anybody in a samsung shirt lololol.

regards

Baz

I lost the ability to connect via Kies on all my Macs (3 of them) over the last month... All had been working fine before.

Today there was a KIES update Version 1.3.0.12052_14 (maybe 16) - and after install ing it...

nothing.. just tried again. no good for me.

Although I've only installed about 5 programs on my Note - it's conceivable that one of them is interfering with the Kies connection...

Kies WIFI works fine...

o well...

UPDATE IT WORKED!!!

Wow.

I shut my phone down.

Then I started KIES on my Mac.

Then i started my phone - with the usb cable plugged in.

When the phone booted i immediately removed the screen lock and after about 45 seconds now it is connected via the cable.

Maybe a reboot of the phone is needed to kill some process that was hindering the connection...


UPDATE: now it works all the time. Can unplug and re-connect and it is detected right away.

I'll try again in a few days after using the phone and some programs...

I have the opposite problem - can connect via USB but NOT via wifi. Kies just says no connection found (or similar message).

Lucky you! Occasionally my Note would connect to Kies, but I would rarely use it. Now I've been trying to use Kies, installed all of the updates, and now it just keeps saying connecting.

It's been hell trying to get Kies to work with my Macbook Pro.

I know the feeling! I've done all the updates and it's still so flaky. Sometimes it connects without a problem, other times it refuses completely. I have noticed that if I reboot both the phone and my MacBook Pro it connects every time but that's a real pain having to do that just to use some software. It's laughable that a company as big as Samsung puts out such utter garbage as Kies.

Just came across this thread. So, for Mac users, if things do not work out, just reboot both the Note and the MacBook Pro. Everything will work out then. Am I right? Does Klis work well under Snow Leopard and Lion?

I'm running it in LION. The reboots seem to make it work 100% for me now.
