    Hello!
    I just updated my galaxy note to ICS 4.0.3, and now when i connect it to the pc it doesnt get recognized. It just start charging and thats it.
    If i turn on Kies, the same, it is like there is no phone plugged in.
    I dont know what to do because to root it using Odin i need that the phone gets recognized, or even if i wantto downgrade to gingerbread again
    Please any help will be amazing!

    Please check if you have the latest version of KIES on your laptop.

    If its not the latest please upgrade KIES via the Internet.

    Once this is done KIES ought to recognize Galaxy Note.

    Ensure that you are using an original Samsung USB cable to connect to the laptop.

    I've noticed that when I used a Nokia USB cable to connect my Note to the laptop KIES did not recognize it.

    Once KIES recognizes the Note ( and it should ) it will demand a Firmware update on the Note, for ICS.

    After this is complete via the USB cable you ought to have no trouble with KIES.

    happens with a lot of times, specially if i hv unplugged the phone and connect it immediately again!!!! i unplug the data cable n connect the phone back after 2-3 mins gap. If the problem persists then restart the laptop. used to encounter same problem with my BB and previous phones. give it a try.

    Go to settings and click More... click USB utilities. click Connect storage to pc.

    Connect your data cable to the phone and your pc and then click Turn on USB storage.

    I hope this helps.

    Hi, I had a batter drain problem on my galaxy note and took it to the warranty shop.
    Now I am unable to connect to my PC to synchronise with OUTLOOK. KIES just freezes when I conenct the phone wireless and with USB cable. I have already had connection problems previously.

    Why can't Samsung come up with a decent software.

    Could you please suggest another software to SYNC with outlook and backup my contacts?
    Thanks

    I weaned myself off Outlook months ago, but did sync it with my Android phones over a period of a couple of years using gSyncit before that....

    Unfortunately it is not free, but an attractive feature is that it syncs via the Google cloud rather than directly between the phone and Outlook. This means you don't need to physically connect the two via a cable as all syncing occurs over the internet. It's also fully automatic - devices sync whenever they are online - not necessarily at the same time - so once set up you can forget about it.

    I had the same problem with my PC not always seeing my phone and Kies saying my phone was not supported. Some people suggested it might be a bad USB cable.
