I have a Samsung Galaxy Ace and my problem is that I am unable to connect the USB to my PC, without starting Kies software. Is it possible that I can connect my Ace to my Laptop without using Kies, because if I have to connect my mobile to any other PC, that may not contain the Kies?

Why do you want to connect it to a pc, moving files/images/music or syncing contacts/calendar or something else? – onik Nov 11 '11 at 11:06

Disable USB Debugging mode in Settings -> Development, and try to connect the device. I'm assuming you have installed Samsung Kies, because all device drivers for Samsung devices are present only in that software, and not on the device.

thanks dude, it all working just by disabling USB debugging, and without KIES... thanks a lot, there is no need for KIES, if you disable USB Debugging – Abbas Nov 11 '11 at 16:03
