    so my computer crashed, and now i want to get the photos off my iphone.
    i have over 300 photos so emailing them back to myself is not an option.
    iphoto will not import them, it only imports photos from camera roll.
    i know the photos will not be the original scale, but these photos would be better that nothing.

    can someone please help me find a free way to do this???!!!
    i have not updated my iphone in about a month cause i want to keep the photos but have found no way other than emailing them one by one... and im missing new music i want to import...

    Not sure of the problem here? If your computer crashed where are you going to move the photos from your phone to? If I am to assume the question correctly you want all the photos from your phone on your PC. Connect the iPhone to the PC using the USB sync cable. Go to My Computer. Your phone should be a device on this page. Double click on it to open it. Then you should see all the files on your phone. Select all and copy/paste them to your PC.

    If you phone was connected already unhook the sync cable and reconnect it. Otherwise it times out or something happens where no files are listed. Disconnect the iPhone and reconnect it to see the files.

    He obviously got his computer fixed, or got a new one? Duh.

    Also your suggestion is ridiculous and won't work....

    yeah, the iPhone isn't a flash drive. it's only accessible through iTunes, and/or 3rd party programs. The photos there will only be from the Camera Roll
