    I have been using the outlook sync feature in my CorbyPro GT-B5310 model since I bought. Recently, I updated my Kies version to the latest 2.2.0 and started getting an issue of not getting sync to Outlook.

    I am getting an error message that Can’t retrieve information from Outlook Folder.

    I kept both Kies and Outlook application open before Syncing the device.

    Please help…

    The problem with the newly releashed Kies not showing the Samsung Apps Store has to do with a corrupt “AStorePlugin.dll” file.
    Luckily, it is only this one file that is corrupt in the whole installation package.
    1. So to solve the problem, just install the new Kies (either as a fresh install or as an update over an existing kies). Restart pc.
    2. Now go to Program Files\SAMSUNG\Kies\Plugins\AStore…
    (a) inside the AStore folder, replace the “AStorePlugin.dll” with the one included in the download link below.
    NOTE: ONLY REPLACE the “AStorePlugin.dll” of size approx 4,014kb.
    (Don’t replace the small one of size about 4kb).

    3. That’s all. Now you can enjoy your new Kies

    Download working “AStorePlugin.dll” file from here:

    Hi, I have an issue…..I just purchased the Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant and I downloaded Kies and when I click on Samsung Apps it tells me to use the apps I must update Kies to the latest version and do I want to update now yes or no. If I click yes it closes Kies all together and if I click no it goes to the Kies main window so I clicked on the drop down menu top left of Kies and it says update and when I click that it says checking for the latest version then it says already have the latest version. So my question is if I have the latest version why is it telling me I need the latest version. Please help! Thanks

    I have recently got a new Samsung Wave GT-S8500 and downloaded Kies but I’ve tried everything and it won’t connect to my PC. I have turned off all the applications on my phone and then plugged in the USB cable but Kies still doesn’t recognise it. Any other suggestions?

  32. MALIK AMER August 23, 2010 at 11:23 pm -


    I bought a samsung GT-b5722 last week. Had to download Kies from the app site and installed on my PC (with window7 version 7600) went with problem unknown device (Code 43). Please help in fixing this.
    Thanks in advance!!

  33. Jeethu August 22, 2010 at 3:02 am -

    Hi Schmitz,

    Thanks for the advice 🙂 and sorry i couldnt write back sooner. As suggested, I downloaded google maps v3.0.2 onto my mobile. It works perfectly fine but a couple of issues i need addressed:

    1. I predominantly use wifi at home and office so I do not have a data plan on my mobile. GPS doesnt seem to point my present location on the map. I’v now tried on both google maps and route66 with no success. I finally set location manually on google maps and its stored. It also prompted me to join google latitude.. yet to explore what that does for me.

    2. After installing about 16 applications from samsung apps and now google maps.. im finding the response time of the phone to be slowing down. And this morning, when i try to preview photographs taken, it just asks me to try again later!!! when trying to locate some place on the map, It says “insufficient memory, please close some application”.. surprised to see this from a phone with a 1gb processer. As for memory, im not sure if any part of the 2gb card that I have inserted, is being utilized for cache? please let me know if I can tweak the performance in anyway.

    Thanks again.
    Take care.. 🙂

    Dear Veni,

    What difficulties are you having? Will your phone not connect? Is the computer not recognizing your phone? If it is just a matter of you wanting a samsung apps widget, then you can find it in the apps store under your menu. What kind of phone are you using? Thanks.

  36. veni August 17, 2010 at 1:37 pm -

    hi.. I just downloaded and installed samsung kies in my PC.. but apparently i just realized that I didn’t have the samsung apps widget in my widget list.. can you help me?

  37. P.Schmitz August 17, 2010 at 10:21 am -

    Dear Jeethu,

    So listening to music through a bluetooth headset usually doesn’t work because most headsets only allow for call making connections, not general audio. The s8500 wave is bluetooth 3.0 with A2DP support. What that means is that when bluetooth devices get upgraded to the new standard you’ll be able to transfer files between your devices faster and the A2DP allows for certain bluetooth headsets to control your music via play/stop/next/back buttons on the headset itself. It also allows for stereo sound to be transmitted to your headset/headphones. Now there are some headphones that allow for voice calls and stereo music that other companies have put out like these Motorola ones . So again without knowing the specific headset make or model, my best guess is that it doesn’t support music streaming, since your phone has the latest bluetooth options on-board. Let me know if this helps or you have more questions, how did that Google Maps thing work out for you?

  38. Jeethu August 17, 2010 at 12:22 am -


    Just a quick question.. when I try to connect a bluetooth headset (mono) to my samsung wave S8500, It works as expected while making or receiving phone calls.. but it wont work for listening to music. Is this some setting i need to change or inherent design allows it to work only for sterio headsets? plz let me know.


  39. P.Schmitz August 16, 2010 at 2:45 pm -

    Dear Jeethu,

    Okay so I found where to install Google Maps, but it isn’t an official release. Someone coded it into a Java package, and you can run it under your Games and More section of your phone. You first need to sign up for an account on the site which is free, and then you go to this forum . Download the package, extract, and then place in a folder on your phone by plugging it into your computer and selecting the mass storage option. Then go into the Files app on your phone, click on the .jar file, install it, continue with unverified signature and then go back to Games and More to run it. As far as data goes I’ve only been testing this on a wifi connection so make sure you have a data plan or turn off your data connection to not overcharge your account. Also it seems the my location feature of the maps is a little buggy. It seems one user can get it to work by first going to Route 66 and receiving your location. Then going to the google maps website and confirming the location, and then finally launching this app. So it takes some work, but does eventually give you a voice free equivalent of google maps for the bada os. Now the route 66 gives you free maps, just no guidance after the first 30 days. There is still the promotion running that if you upgrade by the end of the year its something like 30 euros for a lifetime membership. Let me know if you have any other questions or if any part was confusing.

  40. Jeethu August 16, 2010 at 1:48 pm -

    Hi P.Schmitz, Appreciate your interest and concern. Hope you can throw some light on my latest question.

    Wave s8500 comes with a paid GPS (route66) but considering that nokia and android are providing free GPS support, will the BADA OS on wave work with any other version of free GPS navigation software? If yes, could you help me with downloading/installing the same?

    Thanks in advance.

    Dear Jeethu,

    Can you walk me through what is happening when you try to connect to the internet? Just give me the basic steps of what you do to try and connect, what the phone says, and information about the wireless network you trying to connnect to. Also if you’re having a problem iwth KIES send me the rundown on that problem as well and hopefully we can get this fixed for you. If you want we can do this over email too,

    is der any specified sire to download applications req for the mobile???

    atlast…even i’m unable to connect my mobile with KIES…

    pls pls pls solve my issues

  44. Jeethu August 13, 2010 at 12:41 pm -


    I found the answer to my own question!! 🙂 apparently, the device will not get detected on the PC and be available for use both at the same time. It requires to be in a “Idle” state for it to be detected by the PC or by kies. So, I connected the phone to my PC thru USB cable and switched off the phone. When i restarted the phone, it automatically got detected on kies and in my task bar. Hmm…. i should say, my previous phone (motorazr) was much more easier in this aspect and maybe Samsung can try and fix this to work both ways. But then, that solves the problem 🙂

    Cheers guys, hope it works for u all as well.

  45. Jeethu August 13, 2010 at 12:23 pm -


    I bought a samsung wave s8500 last week. Had to download Kies from the app site and installation on my PC (with XP) went with no problem. I have set in my mobile as: settings – connectivity – usb – samsung kies and when i try connecting to my PC, kies software just takes ages to try and connect device but it never does. I cannot open the mobile device under my computer as mass storage device since it gives an I/O error while trying to open it. I am left without being able to connect my phone to my PC. Please help in fixing this. Otherwise, I am quite satisfied with the phone’s performance.

    Thanks in advance!!

    Would you check if activesync is working properly?

    Kies is not able to connect to my Omnia. Keeps waiting for the connection, but nothing happens. Activesync works fine. I have a custom 6.5 ROM. Could this be the issue? any other clues?
