Can't see my iphone in Windows Explorer

I am running windows 7. I used to be able to plug my iphone with the usb cable and see the iphone folder, similar to a "drive" in windows explorer. Since the last few hours when I plug it in it does not show up in windows explorer.

I tried to uninstall and reinstall the driver but nothing.

Any advice or tips on how to make it appear again?

Thx.

Tried them all, doesn't work and if you read the thread it looks like most people have not had any success either.

I'm on Windows Vista. I was having this problem this morning. Here's what I discovered was the cause.

I found that when I had NO photos in the CAMERA ROLL on the iPhone Photo's app. When I connected my iPhone to my computer with the USB cable, it would not appear in My Computer/Windows Explorer. However, when I had any pictures in the Camera Roll, and I then reconnected the iPhone, it would then appear in My Computer/Windows Explorer.

I tried the above around 6 times and the same thing happened everytime.

I thought I would post what worked for me.
