How to delete photos from Camera Roll at once?

Hi guys!

Does anybody know how to delete all photos from Camera Roll at once? I find it rather dull deleting photos one by one, especially when photos in camera roll accumulate to hundreds. Probably there is a way to do it in iPhoto, but that doesn't suit me since I'm on Windows. Couldn't find a way to do it in Piccasa or iTunes, too. I've been thinking of the following:

- Is there software for Windows for that?
- Are there some iPhone apps that do the thing (from AppStore or JailBreak)?

When I plug my iPhone into my XP pc, up pops the camera wizard to ask me if I want to copy the photos to my PC. One of the options there is to delete the photos after copying. Works fine for me.

There still seems to be something wrong in my case. The camera wizard does pop up just like you guys said and I checked the box. but when it actually tries to delete the pics, after deleting the first one, it gets hung up and eventually the iphone just restarts. this is incidentally the same thing that happens when I try to delete the pics by accessing them through 'My Computer'

any suggestions would really be appreciated

Your photo database has probably got corrupted. Try a restore with DFU mode then sync from back-up.

Talking can you delete the entire camera roll without syncing

Can you delete the entire camera roll without syncing or uploading them somewhere? What about if I have 900 pictures and I don't want to save any and I want to delete them all at once?
* I was told my IPhone doesn't work well if I have 900 photo's stored on the camera roll, which shocked me since I always hear how you can store 5,000 to 25,000 albums or dozens of full length movies, so I figured whats a few hundred pictures? Then again, I thought Milli Vanilli were good singers ... Shows you how little I know.

There is a little known application that comes with OS X called Image Capture. It will let you do this. Very useful app!

To delete items manually:
1. Connect your camera to your computer, and turn the camera on.
2. Select the camera in the Devices list at the left of the Image Capture window.
3. Select the items to delete, and then click Delete.
