Hardware ID Missing - message on PC.

I have to disconnect and reconnect my new Galaxy S3,  3 or 4 times before it shows up on my PC

I get the error message  "Hardware ID Missing"

 

 

I've read some blogs about many other people having this problem.  They're talking about rooting and other things I'd rather not do with a new phone.  I have 4.11 firmware

 

Any help would be great.

Re: Hardware ID Missing - message on PC.

Rooting your phone should be completely unnecessary.

 

You may want to try downgrading your driver to a previous version. I had to revert to 1.4.6.0. in order to fix this exact issue sometime back.

 

This link will give you some more infos...

I installed the Kies software from Samsung.  Everything works perfectly. Kies installed new good working drivers.

 

I guess Kies  for Android is like  iTunes for iPhone.

Kind of. Kies is to Samsung Androids what iTunes is to iPhones.
