    Hi hannah and welcome to the forums :hello:

    Kies can be very stubborn. If you haven't installed drivers for your phone, go here to download and install. You can also try a different usb cable. They can be finicky. If you are running any anti-virus, disable it while trying to use Kies.

    What are you trying to backup? If pictures can you just copy them to your pc? Contacts you can sync with Google and they will restore if they need to. Messages you can use SMS Backup and Restore. App backup you can use Helium. I haven't used it but you can also check My Backup.
