Default Problems with Samsung Kies

I am getting the "maximum roll-out exceeded" message on my device, so I tried to plug in the gear to my computer, and update via Kies. However, when I plug in my gear, Kies does not stop searching for new gear firmware. Kies will recognize that a gear is plugged into the computer, but it does not display the current Gear firmware verson, and the line that is supposed to display the latest firmware version only says "searching..."

Has anyone else had this problem, and if so, was anyone else able to fix the problem?

It appears that I have version 2.6. I tried Kies 3, it told me that the gear was not supported, so I went back to 2.6, where I had the searching problem

I just saw a note in another thread about installing a latent version of Kies to allow for support of devices that are not running newer versions of firmware. Going to give that a shot. I'll post my findings shortly.

The earlier version of Kies found the device and updated the firmware to MK7. All is working well now!

Thanks to everyone!

I didn't have to turn on debugging on my gear for it to work on my windows 8.1 machine

The gear runs an earlier version of android hence the issue.
