Transfer video from iPhone to Macbook

Since video is not transferred through Photo Stream, I need to manually copy all my videos from my iPhone 4S to my MacBook Pro (to them copy to my external HD for storage), but in Finder I cannot find my iPhone listed when connect via USB.

I don't want it all uploaded to iPhoto because it is too hard to find the original files on the computer to move them.

How can I get these videos copied where I want them?

Thanks for any help.

----------

When I go into iTunes, it just shows all my music stuff. It does not show a list of my photos or videos on my iPhone. I'm not seeing a way to use iTunes to transfer those videos to my computer, to a folder of my choice.

Thanks.

iPhoto is actually the easiest way. Once you import them onto iPhoto right click the video in your library and click "View original file" (or maybe it says "View in Finder") You can then move it to your external hard drive.

That's not how the phone functions, it won't show up in finder and you can't transfer off of the device when connected through iTunes. Luckily, there's a super simple, built in functionality!

Connect the phone to your MBP. Open "Image Capture" (located in Applications, or just spotlight search for it) When you ope in, you will see your phone as the device, and will list all photos/videos on there. Simply select what you want to transfer and where you want to transfer it to and hit export. Done and Done.

And the 3rd way, works only for photos and iCloud. If your iPhone is connected to iCloud and Photo Stream activated, simply go to iPhoto, and your photos will be there (i.e. it only works with photos and not with videos).

the post was from 2012 and it was resolved....

I suppose reviving an old thread is a something a lot of folks might do. The part that puzzles me is when one of his two suggestions was specifically eliminated by the OP and the other was already answered. I honestly think some folks don't read past the title.

I honestly don't understand how people find these threads in the first place, and yes, since I clearly answered the question pretty much a year ago there's not really a need to continue to contribute to it.

In fact, this method is good, here I show you another method to help you transfer your iPhone movies to your Macbook at ease with Coolmuster iPhone iPad iPod to computer transfer tool.

If you are using iOS 5, Apple’s new iCloud allows you to take advantage of Photostream, which will push photos to all of your iOS devices, but that’s limited to 1,000 photos. Despite setting up Find My iPhone, losing an iPhone could mean that you’d lose all of your precious photos and videos. It’s always a good idea to back them up and you can do very easily if you transfer photos and videos from your iPhone to a Mac or PC. Just get help from a third part iPhone to Mac transfer tool to help you.

Unhappy having a nightmare

I recently dropped my iphone and as a result the screen has very badly cracked. The iphone still turns on however it doesn't respond to touch anymore. I have connected my iphone to my macbook pro in the hope i can import my videos in some way before it gets picked up today and i lose them forever. I'm currently on image capture as this was the way i was told to transfer them. When im on image capture a message pops up 'please unlock samanthas iphone' obviously i can't unlock the phone how i usually would as the touchscreen no longer works. I was just wondering if there was any other possible way to unlock the iphone via my macbook? any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
