Congrats! You are the first one here to post no to ask when and where the device is available but to report a problem with it

Make sure you have the latest Kies version (2.0.0.11044_11 if I'm not wrong) and please precise your issue. What do you mean exactly by "you can't connect it to Kies"? Aren't there several PC connection modes on Android devices?

Why don't you try yourself with WMP? That's not dangerous

Normally it's working like any Android device so you should not be obliged to use Kies for your files transfers. Kies is only necessary for firmware upgrade.

BTW, I'm not very familiar with Android devices (yet) and I don't have a Wifi 4.0 (yet). Just waiting for Samsung to give me one sooner or later, as usual
That's why it is a bit hard for me to help people with these new Galaxy players...

Can you tell me what's your firmware version? Kies can tell you that or you can also probably check in the settings on the player itself.
'Cause Samsung released a new firmware ver JQ7 some days ago but it is for the Korean GB1 version, I don't know how it is with the G1 (without DMB) version.


PS: please edit your post instead of double posting.

You have to go to
Settings > Wireless & Network > USB settings > Samsung Kies

Then it'll prompt you for firmware upgrades etc, and miraculously appears in My Computer...

This problem is already solved I can go on by turning it on from my notifications. Weird thing is that I don't have USB settings anywhere but this is probably due to the Version of My Device from where I purchased (Hong Kong & Taiwan)
