I finally called AT&T tech support today and they handed me off to Samsung Tech Support (800.726.7864). She told me that the Kies software is only for UK phones not U.S. phones and directed me to install the Kies mini from their site. The mini appears to only provide firmware updates and it basically doesn't seem to work unless there's a firmware update available. That's fine by me as long as it works when Froyo 2.2 comes out.

Default Went back Touchwiz instead of Launcherpro and worked

This was originally posted on XDA forums.



To use as mass storage, you need to mount the SD Cards. pull down the notification bar after connecting to your PC, select "USB Connected" then hit Mount. should show up in My Computer and you should have full access to move files around etc.

As for getting Kies to connect with your SGS, I finally used these steps, which I have to repeat the driver recovery each time i want to reconnect to PC via Kies...

1. Don't plug your phone to the computer yet.
2. Open Kies, from the settings turn off the options 'automatically start monitoring for device connection when Windows starts' and 'Start Kies automatically when device is connected'. For some reason the MTP installation failed each time Kies was open at the same time.
3. In Kies, click the Kies file menu on top of the application and select Driver recovery. Let it install the drivers, then reboot your computer (I only did this the first time).
4. Once rebooted, Kies shouldn't be running. Then plug your phone to the usb connection and select Samsung Kies mode.
5. Wait for the usb device to be detected and the drivers to be installed. Now the MTP installation shouldn't fail.
6. Start Kies and begin using your phone.




I tried this and still Windows 7 32 bit did not recognise my Galaxy S UNTIL I enabled touchwiz again, sounds odd i know. Basically I am using Launcher pro with my Galaxy S as Touchwiz is not to my taste, I went into Applications > Manage Applications > LauncherPro ---- and cleared defaults, once back on the home screen and touchwiz selected, Kies finally saw my device and was able to get to the upgrade firmware, was looking for Froyo, but still not available.

Thanks

However when I tried to connect the phone a second time I got an error on the phone that the MTP application had crashed and I was forced to close it. After which the phone's screen would flash between the home screen and the MTP application, similar to the following video on Youtube:
YouTube - Samsung Galaxy S PC connecting problem with Samsung Kies

I contacted Samsung support on this issue. They immediately responded back and said that if I was running Windows XP and Media Player 11, I needed to follow some steps to remove Media Player 11. I have attached the instructions to this post

Unfortunately for me I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. I responded back with this information and they confirmed that the only work around is to format the internal SD memory card before connecting to the PC. They are working on a firmware update to resolve this issue.

So to connect I have had to do the following:

1. Go to Settings and select the SD Memory option
2. Unmount the internal SD card
3. Format the internal SD card
4. Connect the phone to the PC

Hope this helps people
if you don't want to format your sd card. do the following: connect the phone via mass storage. in windows explorer search for files within the SD card, with extensions over 16 characters. Ex:
"File.asf11313lkjsassas" or ".thumbs12121334332" delete all this files!

Now remove the device and connect again in KIES mode!

Default this fixed it for me

Windows 7 32bit, kies 1.5.3
i tried formatting and restarting and hard reset and NOTHING.
But then one poster said, make sure you have your apps off.
THAT DID IT!
Make sure you turn off all apps. I had juicedefender or some such and that apparently was messing things up.
So go to settings and get the USB Settings set to kies then plug in usb port.
everything should work nicely from there but remember TURN OFF ALL APPS.

I had the same problem as most of people on this list both with my W 7 and my Linux PC's until I removed a launcher I had installed on my Galaxy S. It was then suddenly recognized by bothe PC's without any problem.
Hope this helps some of you.

What kind of garbage company/product is Samsung (Kies)????


Can't update, can't recognize the phone in Kies.... it really shouldn't be this effing complicated to update your phone. Considering the massive profits they are raking in on cell phones think they would give a quick thought to their customer base and make things reasonably straightfoward....

Trying to update to 2.2 and have no f-ing clue what to do... plug phone in on Windows 7, doesn't show up... unplug phone, Kies tells me to plug it back in... yet it didn't show up.

Turning off apps, deleting files from your SD card is B-S... Samsung needs to provide an acceptable solution!!!!

Smile Success but for how long

Well gang, I have been working on my problem for over two weeks. NStechfreak spent a lot of time and effort working with me to try and get my PC to recognize my phone in just mount mode. No luck, tons of different solution dismounting the SD card to uninstalling and reinstalling Kies and drivers no friggin luck. Always the same message "Device Not Recognized". I had tried all the suggested solutions on my wife's PC and my daughter's laptop no damn luck. I was just about to throw the phone against the wall when I read "Try a USB port on the back of your computer". I had tried different USB ports on my machine (I have two on the front) with no success. I plugged into the back of my machine and voila. Recognized my phone, installed the drivers and was ready to rock. Now this was in mass storage mode. I then reinstalled Kies and tried to attach my phone that way. It told me to set my USB setting to Kies mode. Did that up came my phone and everything worked fine. Turned on LauncherPro and tried that both ways, no problems. As a fix, I have no bloody idea what the hell is going on. Do I trust this connection technique.....not on your Nellie. All I know is it works for now but for how long is anybodys guess. By the way, all the machines at home here run Windows 7 64 bit home premium edition. I hope this info helps somebody solve their problem. Good Luck.

Cool CompanionLink WORKS WHERE KIES FAILS

If you goal is to sync Outlook stuff (contacts, notes, tasks, calendar) you can use a third party app. to solve the problem, with no problems at all. I use 64 bit also with a multi-core CPU. That is usually like a double whammy. But you will need to go into you phone's options (applications>USB settings> and set the SD mode to 'MASS STORAGE'. After that all is good. You can get it here http://www.companionlink.com/ and it is NOT free. It's like $40. But that is chump change when weighed against the $500 this phone cost me. Kies sucks, but CompanionLink works always. Oh yea, on the Kies menu, make it where Kies does not start auto when the phone connects. CompanionLink will come up after you tell your phone to sync from the phone. The desktop will say 'press OK on your phone to complete the sync'. And be patient, just because it is not instant, it does work. Maybe a whole minute or even three if there are a lot of changes.

there's a small program somewhere at xda forums where you can search and delete a file in both external and internal storage of sgs having longer filename extensions. this causes the looping trying to connect your phone to kies. i've been using this with my windows 7 64 bit and latest kies. or you can do it manually, usually these files are located at dcim folders and its a hidden file. to view this, in file explorer click menu (left button) and check show hidden files. go to dcim folder (both in external and internal)
and delete these files prior to connecting your phone to the computer. this works for me always. please note that these files are always created everytime your phone restarts and scans your storage media for files.

I've had similar issues with trying to get the Samsung Kies (1.5.3.10103_102) running on my latop (Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit) to connect to my Samsung Galaxy S running Android 2.1 (as it was shipped with the phone).
The solution I had was to have Kies running on laptop, and then reboot my phone. As the phone restarts it is detected by Kies running on the latop.

(Make sure you have the Samsung Kies option selected on your phone's USB configuration, which I believe you can change in Settings/About phone/USB settings in Android 2.1, and Settings/Wireless and network/USB settings in Android 2.2)

Now I've upgrade phone to Android 2.2 I don't have the issue any more.

Dude.. you rock! This was exactly the problem I was facing. Disabled LauncherPro, restarted my GS, and I'm now busy fiddling with Froyo features. Thanks a bunch!

this was the solution for me. had previously used kies to update my telus fascinate to froyo and then couldn't connect to kies at a later date...had no problem connecting to pc via mass storage option. switching back from go launcher to the stock tw launcher solved this problem...although found kies to be virtually useless for anything other than the firmware update. What i really need is a usb synch option that would allow me to connect to my ubuntu desktop ;-)

I just got the Captivate and while my X64 Windows 7 works ok with the phone in MASS STORAGE mode. I can't get KIES to transfer music or pics and in any other mode such as FIRMWARE UPDATE mode. The only work around for the pics and and music is to do this manually but I would rather do it through KIES, if at all possible.

Is this do-able?

Default Kies connectivity problem solved.

Heyy,
To make you phone recognize in Kies you need to install phone's driver.
So install the driver and then connect your phone to the PC and run Kies. Download SAMSUNG_USB_Driver_for_Mobile_Phones.exe.cab from Sendspace.com - send big files the easy way Link to the Driver.

Now, a few days later when I connected to my pc, the Kies software launched but doesn't recognise the phone like it did before. It is not recognised in the Windows device manager list, I have uninstalled and re-installed Kies 3 times, all to no result. I noticed at the bottom of the download site it said it only supported Windows 7 32 bit, could that be the reason why it does not work properly?, if it is, why did it work O.K in the beginning?.
Also when I try to use the music player it just tells me I do not have a sd-card installed, when it worked perfectly well last week.
Can anybody please help.

I had this issue, but in my case the problem was caused by 6 feet USB cable
Looks like too long USB cable can cause connection problems

I had a Samsung Wave...connected fine with Kies
...it was stolen so I bought the Galaxy, and yep...Kies couldnīt see it. Weeks of dicking around with updates and reinstallations, even tried it on two systems: my new W7 and the older XP-SP3, but no luck.

So...after reading thru this thread, my mind boggled by the various suggestions: delete files, delete long files extensions, turn off this or that app, edit the registry, write special progs, upload wierd launchers and detonators and sausage grilling device managers, reformat, you name it...etc etc, I decided to turn the phone off and go back to writing letters to my friends. No!...just kidding: I simply re-booted the phone and plugged it back in...Kies saw it immediately and I was able to back-up all photos, videos, music, contacts etc.

Just try it first.

Why Samsung manufactures reasonably good hardware but accompanies it with a bitchy, problematic software to support it beats me; half the the time KIES will not do this or that. No wonder this thread has attracted a 102,000 read number to it, proof that many have suffered at the hands of KIES.

I contacted Samsung and they posted this message to me in their online system:

Windows and Mac. Kindly change the mode of connection of your handset to Mass Storage
option by following these steps:
1) In Idle mode, open the application list.
2) Select Settings then Wireless and network.
3) Then choose USB utilities.
4) Choose Connect storage to PC.
5) Select OK to confirm.
6) Using an optional PC data cable, connect the multifunction jack on
your device to a PC. (When connected, a pop up window will appear on the
PC).
7) When connected, select Connect USB storage.
8) Select OK to confirm.

That fixed it for me.

They also wrote:

Minimum system requirements:
OS: Windows XP (32bit / 64bit) - I am using Windows 7 x64.
CPU IntelŪ Pentium 1.8 GHz processor or higher (recommended)
Admin Rights Full admin rights required (for read / write of data + Installation of KIES.exe
file) - I have v2.0
Minimum memory (RAM) size 1.00 GB (recommended)
Free hard drive space At least 500 MB
Screen resolution 1024 X 768 (600), 32 bit or above
Required software .Net Framework 3.5SP1 - I installed 4.0 to try and fix earlier
Windows Media Player 11 - I am using 12
ActiveSync 4.5

I hope this helps. Mass Storage Option every time for me!!

Hi, I dont know if i have the same problem as you guys... I connect my Samsung Galaxy S to my computer using the USB lead, i get the 'Ba-Bum' noise it makes but i dont know if it's recognised by KIES.

It says "connecting" for a few seconds then it says
"Reconnect the device in Samsung Kies (PC Studio) mode. Current connection mode not supported by KIES"

So i'm at a loss what to do, I need to update to OS 2.2
Any help?

For what it's worth here is a description of my experience.

Installed Kies and rebooted. Plugged in Galaxy S via USB. Windows 7 64 bit reports unrecognized device.

Kies is a 32 bit application and ships with 32 bit USB drivers which are installed under the Kies installation directory. The install exe gives the version number 1.4.4.0.

These drivers need to be uninstalled and replaced with the Samsung 64 drivers - Samsung_Mobile_Driver_V1.3.800.

How to fix.

Don't uninstall Kies. Just uninstall the 32 bit drivers using the exe in the install directory.
Shutdown and power off the pc for 60 seconds to ensure the usb driver cache is cleared.
Restart the PC.
Download and install the 64 bit drivers.
Restart the PC.
Connect the Galaxy S in Kies mode.
Windows should now detect the Galaxy S and configure the 64 bit drivers.
The phone will show up as a USB device in Windows file explorer and the files on the phone are fully accessible.
Start Kies.
The phone will appear in Kies after a couple of minutes.

Remember. Every time you update Kies it installs the 32 bit drivers so you will have to repeat this exercise again.

Don't need to install/reformat anything... The SD card solution works well..

What worked for me:
1. Connected GalaxySL to Kies.. "Trying to Connect Device"... message.
2. Remove the external SD card, while still connected, and wallah!! the phone (internal SD) is detected.
3. Reconnect the SD card, and Kies discovers the external SD card too.

Done...
Hope this helps!!
