Default Kies not finding device after ROM install

Hi, I recently installed CarbonROM to my S3 mini i1890 with Android 4.4.4 and I can't seem to reconenct my device to my PC. It doesn't seem to find the device.

However, my device connects via Blutooth and I can send files from there. However this doesn'r resolve my problem. I am trying to put all of my contacts etc back onto my Flashed device via Kies but it won't recognize it. can't seem to find a way to send the file manually either via blutooth either.

Reflashing back to stock ROM is not an option. I could enter them all manually and it will be faster then reinstalling all the other stuff.

If anyone has any way around it. Please post. Thanks

Ahh I did backup with Titanium but I never understood it as the app would be uninstalled anyway. Maybe it was cloud storage. Not sure. I'll try it though. Thanks.

Hmm no that didn't work. Seems like the contacts are incompatible now that I have the new ROM installed. Gave me tons of errors constatnly so I had to clear the data for the two contact apps. Then it works fine. Lost my other 2 contacts I added before though lol :/

Is there anyway to analyse these files on a PC?

I would hazard a guess that your issue is KIES. Try disabling, or unistalling it. Also have you checked to make sure that your USB Cable is good ? Have you tried a different USB Cable ? Did you try a different PC ? I would also suggest checking out the links below. As the members there have the same device, and can better assist you you with your device. The first one is to the Forum for your device. The second is to the specific section where you can ask questions for your particular device.
