Previously used KIES with S2 and always connected OK .... now bought S4.
Plug in Galaxy S4 ... not detected by Windows ... but phone does 'bing' that it is charging.
Start KIES .. plug in S4 ... same ...
nothing appears in 'my computer'
Try from KIES - "Troubleshoot connection error"
remove cable then press 'start'
States "reinstalling KIES device driver" ....
after a while see the sys tray - "installing Device Driver Software"
then that changes to
"Device driver software was not successfully installed "no driver found"
Reinstalled KIES - same results
Then tried manual approach downloaded driver from Samsung .. v1.5.33
It commences install, then the same as above ... starts installing .... then error that its not successful.
That is even just on driver install, no phone attached
