Now then..the story continues..... firstly I am not feeling the love from Kies. Mr Samsung...if you're listening, you have created the most wonderful phone and a bucket of donkey poo to help run it.....kind of like a Ferrari Enzo with a Prius engine! Not cool, and certainly not good for my stress levels!!!!!
After reading some helpful posts on this wonderful forum, I have once again managed to get access to my phone.
My first BIG mistake was to treat Kies like iTu..... well you know the OTHER one! Once I had deleted all my music from Kies, it loaded like a dream. But then daa daa daaaaaaa...my pc wouldn't recognise my phone!!!!! Agggggh!
So...one bottle of The Good Captains spiced special and lots of reading posts....I cracked it.
Look for a post called "Real Solution to Kies Connection Problem" credit to that marvel who posted it...thank you thank you thank you....and so far so good! My PC recognises my phone, Kies opens up and we are once again all on speaking terms!
Thanks to one and all who took the time out to try and help a bewildered soul....I shall now go and have tee many martonis in your honour!!!!!
