Does anyone have anything on this?
I have searched many forums and I see this problem over and over again..
The solutions always seem to be be non repeatable and almost chance.
I have galaxy S3 with Jellybean and CyanogenMod 10.0.0-d2att
(plenty of people out there with the same problem and a stock phone so lets not blame this yet)
Running Windows 7
Tried un-install and re-install as administrator. Downloaded Kies and drivers from Samsung webside Dec 1st 2012.
Kies just says "connecting" for about 20 min. then nothing.
Trouble shooting option says reboot phone (also contrary to someone elses post it specifically says to disconnect first - either way does not work)
Someone suggested removing the SD card. I cant imagine why this would matter but in my case it does not make any difference.. in fact no matter what I do kies reacts the exact same way..
I should note that I have NO issues with seeing the phone memory or SD card memory from windows explorer when connected via wired USB connection - just garbage software kies..
Cannot connect via blutooth either kies says device rejected connection even after the computer and phone agree with pairing codes.
Not interested in kies wireless..
I can send individual files to my computer via bluetooth file transfer
I have tried MTP and PTP no difference
Drop Box has no problem transfering pics via wired USB connection..
Is there a better software out there because Kies is apparently a joke this problem has been circulating around since maybe 2010 on S2? Rediculous..
Does anyone know how to get a Samsung Galaxy S3 to Kies? i've just got a new s3 & have had the same problem on two different PCs (windows). Kies has downloaded successfully but when i plug in the phone using the usb i get a "connecting" message but it does not connect. I clicked on the troubleshooting option & the drivers downloaded again but this didn't help. I've also tried enabling the debugging option in the "developer options" in settings & plugging in phone to usb again.
