    I've done everything, but still can't sync my Galaxy to my PC with Kies!!

    Hi guys!
    I 've read through all the related posts and I've followed them, but Kies still won't recognise my phone and I can't use it as a USB storage device either!

    I've downloaded the latest Kies 1.5.1.10071_32 onto my Windows XP. (Also tried a friend's XP too)
    Manually updated the drivers.
    unmounted my SD card.
    Reboot the phone and the computer several times.
    Tried to turn the Kies on before connecting.

    However it always stuck at when Kies showed "Connecting the device..." or sometimes it goes pass that phase, it will show "Driver needs to be installed. Preparing for driver installation..." and froze there. (I have leave it there for overnight even and it still wouldn't work!!)

    sometimes my phone screen will go crazy with the "MTP application screen" flashing alternating with the home screen! this can't be normal right?

    aarrrhh, this problem is driving me mad!! why can't it just be bloodly plug in and play??

    please please help!

    From my limited experience, Kies is a piece of junk.
    Settings>About Phone>USB Settings > Change to Mass Storage

    it does feel like a piece of junk!!!

    I have tried the mass storage, but still doesn't work!

    On my other PC, the kies will take over and said "please change to connect with kies mode"!!

    update, I've got it to work after formatting my internal SD card. but as soon as I disconnected it, the 2nd time I want to reconnect, I had to do the same exercise again, which made me format all the songs I've put into my internal SD card.

    I'm very frustrated!

    this kind of problem should not have happened!!!!

    Kies requires your mobile be connected through a USB 2.0 in order to work properly, if the USB connection is a 1.0 type it may struggle initially to do any functions.

    Hi

    I have read comewhere that it is to do with a currupt mp3 or something. I am getting the same error, I reset my phone to factory setting, reinstalled the drivers. Not cured it just changed the fault. I will try and access the memory card and see if I can change the mp3 files or delete them. Don't use them anyway.. I'll let you know how it goes. I gotta go to work now..
