    I don't know whether this is right place to post this or not.

    I have Samsung Galaxy5 i5801. When I connect it to my PC with USB cable, Samsung Kies just shows status of "Connecting the devide..." but nothing happens thereafter even after waiting till eternity. Phone also doesn't show notification of connection with PC. So the only use of USB cable for me now is to charge phone's battery
    Things were working fine till last week. But don't know what's happening now.:thinking:

    Somebody please help.

    I also have this problem i use a mac so i can't get kies, but my phone doesn't get detected by the mac at all and i receive no notification that the usb has connected on my phone. It still recharges the phone, but that is all. It was working fine yesterday so I don't know why it would be doing this, I have changed the settings like turning on usb debugging and turning it off and changing usb settings but no luck if anyone can help please reply

    Okay, well I solved my problem by doing a factory data reset (via Settings->Privacy->Factory Data reset). Something got corrupted I guess. works fine now

    try this: (this worked on my Samsung Captivate i897 running Android 2.1update1, before this I could connect to the network, Kies mini (US) would not recognize the firmware. Did this and it worked.

    Settings/Applications/Manage Applications

    Menu button/Filter/All

    scroll through to Device Management/Storage/Clear Data

    Once I did this I powered off the phone and connected it to my computer (win 7 64 bit), Kies mini updated so I rebooted once again and it worked.

    Hope this works for you.

    I have a samsung galaxy S, and its a piece of sh**. When the update came out, it decided to crash and wipe my whole phone, i then connected it back to kies and it refixed it self. After that day NONE of my computers/Laptops recognise the phone. I've restorted it too factory settings, been through everything, brought a SD card, uninstalled, reinstalled kies and nothing is working....

    Im blaming it on the stupid update they did that samsung call centre workers laughed at. I rang them to tell them my phone had gone crazy and if they could help me fix it, instead he sat there laughing at me saying how stupid i was for installing the update.

    I hate this phone and telling everyone not to get 1. Worst phone out.

    But if anyone has any clues or ideas as to how to get my laptop/computer to recognise my phone, PLEASE HELP. Ive tried everything and giving up and about to put the phone to the back of the cupboard.

    I've restored 3 times and still nothing.

    Dont restore unless its a major issue aka, lagging/wont turn on/off/No display/cant use internet/cant access applications. My phone wont turn on, just stays as a black screen for hours then decides to turn on to only lag and make me have to turn it off again to do the same procedure.

    I kept trying this..and it eventually worked. (Maybe after 15th time...)

    - Connect the USB and start KIES mode, then disconnect it by pressing home key if it didnt recognize.
    - Connect it again in KIES mode...disconnect if it didnt recognize.
    Kept doing it until it FINALLY recognized. Got Lucky !!

    So, Samsung and Kies SUCK !!

    Doesn't doing that reset all the data on your phone? :thinking:
