    My friend just got an i9000 in Australia. However, no matter what she tries, she cannot get it to connect via USB on ANY mode (MTS, Mass Storage, etc). She's running Windows 7, and has tried it on other PCs and USB ports that are known to work. Every time it says USB device not recognized.

    We've already installed various drivers and kies but NONE of the USB options work. The phone itself doesn't even act like it is connected (but it DOES charge).

    Any ideas?

    I got caught by not realising something *:

    Set the USB Connection to Mass Storage

    Connect to the Computer

    Drag down the top bar of the Home Screen

    * You will get an option to connect USB and Mount the phone.

    BINGO

    Now..I was having issue with KIES connection ( his is a different issue in my opinion.

    I resolved it by completely removing anything ITUNES from my PC

    BINGO again. KIES now works.

    Good luck.

    Again, as I said, there is no such option in the notification bar. It is truly as if the phone has no idea it's connected to a PC.

    I had this problem last night when I first got home with my Samsung Vibrant. Once I downloaded the driver here, it worked fine:

    Samsung

    Click software

    Download and install the EXE file (Kies_Mini_For_Vibrant_10095_9.exe)

    Once that is done, you can then plug your phone in to the computer. You need to mount it after plugging it in. On mine, that means I pull down the status bar at the top and tap on the "USB connected" listing then select mount.

    For me it's a Samsung Vibrant connecting to my computer running Windows 7 x64 fwiw

    Now, when I plug in the phone, nothing happens (this is expected). Once mounted though, Windows detects two new removable drives and asks if I want to view them, and they work perfectly fine.

    There's no USB connected listing in the notification bar, as I've now stated twice.

    Go to settings -> Applications -> Development -> USB Debugging mode. Turn that on.

    Did you try installing the driver and reconnecting your phone?

    I'm having the same exact problem.

    I have my Samsung Vibrant connected via usb to my PC and it shows that the phone is charging, but the USB connection notication isn't showing up like it used to. And when i disconnect the USB, theres a delay on the battery icon, it takes about 4 minutes for the battery charging icon to return to the non battery charging icon.

    Any help on this?

    Unless if you really need kies, usb debugging will do the trick.
