    Hi

    My older computer got stolen and some of my pictures from that computer are on my iphone. I tried to download then onto my new mac but it only lets me download the pictures ive taken with the camera, how do i download the other pics on my iphone without losing them?

    THANKS!

    I had the same problem. I looked everywhere for a solution - unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be any way. Every program I tried didn't detect the iPhone. Maybe there is a way - if there is, I'd like to know too. :)

    If their isn't a whole bunch you could just email them to yourself from your iPhone.

    Does Senuti work for the iPhone? I was able to transfer my photos off of my 5G iPod when my HD died a couple of years ago. I learned my lesson..... I back up everything now.

    I've never tried it (or needed to) with my iPhone though.

    No, it doesn't. I also used it for my iPod video.

    You could buy touchcopy then and just download them straight from your iPod.

    Did you try copying them to your computer by accessing your iPhone over ssh?

    I believe that they have to be store somewhere in
    / private / var / mobile / Media / DCIM

    Please correct me if I am wrong

    when i plug in my iphone it detects it as a device, on xp pro.

    maybe plug it into ur pc. download the pictures to there, and then transfer them to your mac?

    That is what i mean, it seems a little troublesome, but it is really one way of doing it.
