    Hi all
    Need an answer for my friend. She has her friends laptop which runs windows 7. She has connected her iphone to the laptop and wants to see her photos which are on the phone on the laptop. But she is unable to see it. She is not able to see her iphone as removable storage device etc on the laptop. She can back up the phone on iTunes tho.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks on advance.

    Open the Photos app.
    Then open My Computer and then open the iPhone in Windows Explorer.

    That should do it. I often can't see the photos unless I open the Photos App first

    I haven't tried this yet but I don't think you can do that to an iPhone. If it doesn't show up as a removable drive it means you cannot access it through Explorer.

    If I am right, you must access photo through iTunes, meaning you enable photo sync in iTunes.

    Samsung--->Iphone "invisible" photos

    Hi guys,

    I really need you help to recover my photos.

    I have just changed my Samsung Advance with an Iphone 4S. When I bought the Iphone, at the store, they transferred my photos from my Samsung on the new Iphone.
    The issue is that I can see the photos on my Iphone, but when I try to save them on my laptop they are...how to say this...invisible and I can only see the photos from the Camera Roll. It's very clear that the photos are there because the Internal Storage shows 2.56 GB free of 7.38 GB.

    I have attached you a print screen with what I can see on the laptop. As you can see only only photos are visible (those from the camera roll), the other photos are...invisible.

    Please help me solve this and have my photos on my laptop, I really don't wanna lose them:(

    Thanks in advance,
