It seems like a couple of people are having problems connecting their phones to the Kies application. I've tried searching for soultions and have tried as many as I could find with no luck.
My phone - Galaxy S2 with Vodafone sim - via Carphone Warehouse last week, so no Voda bloatware that I'm aware of
My PC - running up to date Windows XP (no driver issues relating to my phone in Control Panel)
Kies - latest version, as far as I'm aware: Kies_22.214.171.12453_99_3 (have unistalled and re-installed)
What I've tried:
Phone in debugging mode, Kies asks me to reconnect in Kies mode. If this exists, how do I access it?
Without debugging mode, Kies tells me that my device isn't supported I've also tried with and without my additional memory card
I can access my phone via my PC using Kies air (wireless network seems to work fine, although still doesn't register this connection in normal Kies)
I can also access my phone's folders via explorer (and transfer data), so I know the USB connection is working
