3 different computers (all running W7)
all USB ports on all computers
Installing, Uninstalling, Wiping all Kies data, lots of restarting

for me, the only way i could get it to work, plug in cord (only into comp) put back into download mode, plug in BEFORE i volume up to continue, plug in, vol up to continue and then it downloaded the drivers

Pluging the micro-USB cable just before hitting the Vol.Up button did the trick for me too.

Thanks a lot !

(tried on Samsung Galaxy Pocket Plus GT-S5301)

I found that using RAMDUMP Mode instead of Download Mode forces the phone to be detected by Odin.. Samsung Galaxy S Plus here...
