    These threads may help you... it seems that Kies can be "flakey" to say the least.

    Hope this helps. :D

    I had similar issues with KIES detecting my I9100, issue resolved itself when I put the USB cable into a different USB slot on my laptop.

    So we could be looking at;

    - Faulty USB drivers that are not picked up on the application hub
    - Faulty USB port
    - Particular USB ports not supplying enough power for the device

    So you may want to try to plug it into another USB slot or try a powered USB hub.

    Hope that helps.

    I'm having the same problem.

    Could you provide a link to the old version please? Thanks.

    Samsung Kies 2.0.0.11044_11 - Free Samsung Kies Download at Downloadplex.com

    Install this version, also what I did before I boot up Kies I put cellphone in USB debugging mode all drivers were installed in win7. After that I launched Kies plugged the phone back. Took maybe a minute or so for it to recognise the phone. Make sure you don't update Kies when it asks you to. Any questions don't be shy to ask

    Best of luck

    I have a solution;
    I'm having exact same problem as many of you, and still have; so what I do now on my galaxy s2 itself is go into 'application' click on 'kies air' it then gives you a URL address to enter on your computer webrowser page (you must be on-line of course) then 'hey presto' you can use Samsung Kies on-line without connecting your USB, it's great!!!!
