    I could not get it to connect at all today, but it had worked in the past, so I tried various things, including turning Kaspersky AV off - but it didn't seem to help.

    I tired a few other things and I think the solution may be to turn wifi off!

    Seems to work consistently for me now, Windows 7 32bit

    Try it and see how it goes.

    Try unmounting your SD card, if you have installed one. You obviously cannot access it for file transfer, but normal USB mode will allow that anyway. But if it works you can flash your firmware etc.

    Not true. Running latest version of Kies with Win 7 64 and it still refuses to play ball.

    I had some troubles at the beginning connecting my SGS with Kies, not now anymore.
    What i do is launch Kies first and then i connect the cable to the phone, since then i haven't got problems.
    I use Vista 32 bit at home and XP professional 32 bit at the office.
    I'm running 1.5.1.10074.2 Kies version at the office and an older one at home (don't remember witch one right now).

    works for me, just need to be using the Tw laucher and then unmount the phones sd card then re mount it. Kies will then recognise it, work for me:)
